Terma's 3D-Audio & Active Noise Reduction system is evaluated by US National Guard for F16 fighters

The U.S. Air National Guard conducts an Operation Utility Evaluation (OUE) with Terma's solution integrated into an ANG F-16 aircraft. Following the initial OUE flight tests, the lead test pilot reflected on the installation in Defence Professionals:

"Spatial separation of multiple communication channels helps pilots mentally process time-critical radio transmissions much better than the legacy audio configuration. Especially in a 3-radio configuration, 3D-Audio enhances pilots' situational awareness in all of the varied mission sets of the F-16 performs.

The system features AM3D 3D Audio technology, which assists the pilot in localizing hostile fighters in its actual position without loss of time or receiving alerts with more intuitive directional information.
