ATLANTA – Saab Aerosystems of Sweden has picked a high-end visual server from Concurrent for simulators used in its Gripen jet fighter program.

The Concurrent ImaGen server utilizes RedHawk Linux.

The server will be used as an image generator as part of the simulator.

“Compared to the other [image generators] we evaluated, Concurrent’s ImaGen proved to be the best choice for commercial off-the-shelf based visual simulation given its high-quality real-time visuals at an economic price,” said Jörgen Degerstedt, manager of Training Simulators at Saab Aerosystems.
Saab Aerosystems has utilized Concurrent servers in the past.
