J2 Aircraft Dynamics gains US DOS license to provide military aircraft technical support

Posted 24 May 2018 · Add Comment

J2 Aircraft Dynamics, a UK SME and ADS member, has received a license from the US Department of State (DOS) to provide technical assistance through 2022, under International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), in the form of modelling, analysis, performance prediction and simulation frameworks into a variety of military heavy lift and fast jet fixed wing aircraft, plus certain operational rotary platforms.


 
This news comes hot on the back of other US Department of Defense (DOD) successes with j2 supporting the RC-135 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) upgrade work, also under ITAR, which the UK RAF will benefit directly from plus the delivery of eight trailer based UH-72A Lakota Synthetic Flight Training Systems (SFTS) serving the US National Guard for which j2 provided complete Flight Dynamics and Engine Model (FDEM), analytical tools and simulator host environment to F2Si for the rotary simulators to meet FAA Level 6 Flight Training Device (FTD) requirements.
 
J2 is advancing its technology in key export markets and continues to see substantial value creation in the adoption of its technology and capability evidenced by the extended ITAR license period and multi-platform reach. 

J2 Universal Toolkit is a commercial off the shelf software for the design, analysis and modelling of fixed wing aircraft in core design, simulation, flight test and air accident investigation applications. The J2 Universal Toolkit provides a design/modelling/analysis solution that can integrate any legacy data or code into a powerful analytical engine, enhancing the visualisation, speed and fidelity of the aircraft analysis/evaluation process. J2 aircraft models can be flown in any simulator platform from desktop to full mission simulators and can be changed and evaluated in real time.

The Universal Toolkit can put a pilot in the loop at any stage in an evaluation process, testing and running handling variations and operational changes, accelerating the move towards certification. J2 already delivers accelerated design process and reductions in re-work. In Flight Test the j2 software can dramatically cut the flight matching phase and can be used as a flight test rehearsal toolset too.
