£6.5m Eurofighter contracts for VEGA Group


VEGA Group PLC (VEGA) has won two contracts, totalling some £6.5 million, to support the Eurofighter Ground Aids training programme. Under these contracts, VEGA is involved in developing a desk-top trainer programme (DTT) and a maintenance simulator trainer (MST), which will be PC-based training devices for the UK, German, Spanish and Italian Airforces’ ground crew.

This contract is part of the overall Eurofighter training solution, in which VEGA is partnered with established Eurofighter partner companies EADS (Germany), EADS-CASA (Spain) and Alenia (Italy). VEGA will be developing 40 per cent of the emulation software and 29 per cent of the courseware involved in these projects, as well as procuring and installing the UK systems.

Agreed additions for the delivery of hardware and support packages makes this, effectively, VEGA’s largest ever contract.

According to VEGA’s chief executive, Phil Cartmell: “The Eurofighter project further cements VEGA’s position as a major training solutions provider in the European defence market. In addition to the contracted work, these projects could provide for additional services, potentially running for more than ten years.”
