Flatirons Danmark A/S Signs New Collaboration Agreement with Airbus Defense and Space in Support of Eurofighter Typhoon Danish Fighter Replacement Program Entry
April 13, 2016 | Birkerød, Denmark – Flatirons Solutions, a global provider of technical information management solutions for knowledge-driven industries including aviation, aerospace, shipping, rail, energy, and defense, announced today the signing of a new teaming agreement with Airbus Defense and Space, a subsidiary of Airbus Group, one of the world’s leading providers of aeronautics, space, and defense services and technologies.
The agreement formalizes the team’s entry of the Eurofighter Typhoon, produced by a consortium that includes Airbus Group, Alenia Aermacchi, and BAE Systems, for meeting the Danish Fighter Replacement Program’s (DFRP) requirements. The DFRP is evaluating entries on behalf of the Danish government to support the replacement of the Royal Danish Air Force’s (RDAF) aging F-16 fleet, which is due to be phased out of service.
As part of the agreement, Flatirons will provide CORENA Suite® software for production and ongoing management of Danish Eurofighter Typhoon maintenance publications, including airframe and engine manuals. The CORENA Suite-powered Flatirons Multi-Spec Solution software included as part of the entry provides full content lifecycle management for mobile maintenance and technical operations. The teaming agreement builds on a long-term partnership between Flatirons and Airbus Group, including collaboration in support of Airbus’s NH90 and Tiger programs since 2001.
Flatirons CEO Geoffrey Godet welcomed the teaming agreement, stating that “Flatirons has enjoyed a productive relationship with Airbus Group through our work on defense helicopter programs, and we are gratified to extend our partnership in support of the Eurofighter Typhoon entry for the Danish Fighter Replacement Program.”
CORENA Suite is extensively adopted worldwide to make task performers in the field more productive, with customers that include nearly half of the world’s top ten airlines, leading aviation and defense Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), and defense operators.
