LIG Nex1 announced on June 20 that the company agreed to cooperate with the Netherlands Aerospace Center (NLR) in the field of software for a fighter-mounted training system at the Paris Air Show 2017, the world's largest air and defense exhibition on June 19.

The fighter-mounted training system is avionic equipment that realizes a battle simulation that minimizes the gap between virtual reality and an actual battlefield environment for fighter pilots' tactical and operational training.

Through this partnership, LIG ​​Nex1 expects that the company will be able to participate in Korean fighter software development projects and create new opportunities for avionic equipment.

NLR is a government-run Dutch defense contractor and an international research institute that conducts research and development on space and aeronautics. The company is said to have the world's best technology in the field of fighter-mounted virtual training systems.
