Orbit Communication Systems Inc. announced today that Boeing selected its Orion Audio Management System (AMS) for the U.S. Air Force’s new T-7A Red Hawk advanced pilot training system.

Orbit Communication Systems Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of Israel’s Orbit Communication Systems Ltd.

Recognized for its innovative design, the Boeing T-7A is a purpose-built jet trainer specifically designed to provide advanced pilot training for future fighter and bomber pilots.

Orion is an innovative and highly resilient IP-based airborne audio management system designed to support diverse network-based communication products and applications.
