To power intensely real 3D image generation within a new tactical support and training system for its Gripen fighter, Saab Aerosystems has purchased four SGI(R) Onyx(R) family visualization systems from Silicon Graphics (NYSE: SGI) as the core hardware technology. Saab’s new flight simulator, called PETRA (Planning, Evaluation, Training, Rehearsal and Analysis), can be used for planning, evaluating and debriefing of missions — either simulated or actual real-life missions — as well as for basic training and rehearsal exercises, mission rehearsal in training and analysis of tactical scenarios.
