PACE performance tool to support French AWACS fleet

Software provider receives development subcontract from Air France Industries

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) Knowledge-based engineering software provider PACE has been awarded a subcontract by Air France Industries to develop an on-board flight performance software for the French Air Force's fleet of AWACS E-3F aircraft. The software will leverage the company's commercial performance calculation modules to support a variety of analysis tasks from pre-flight planning to takeoff performance and in-flight rerouting scenarios. The PACE tool will replace ground-based legacy planning tools as well as manual calculation procedures performed by cockpit crews during flight missions.

"PACE has an excellent track record of providing performance analysis software," says Bernard Delcamp, General Manager AWACS Products at Air France Industries. "The French Air Force will certainly benefit from increased operational flexibility through this investment in state-of-the-art technology."

"We are very pleased to have been selected for this prestigious project", says Alexander Schneegans, PACE Managing Director. "I think our experience combined with Air France Industries' in-depth knowledge of the aircraft and its operation provide a sound basis for delivering a top-quality solution to the French Air Force."
