Ball Aerospace said in a release attendees were able to test the cockpit in a simulator that provides a look at the jet’s sensor fusion technology and computers.
The company makes communications and navigation equipment along with an identification antenna suite for the F-35.
“Ball’s advanced low-observable antenna suite for this 5th Generation multirole fighter” is designed to provide the F-35 stealth attributes and high radio frequencies, said Ball Aerospace CEO David Taylor.
Attendees included state and local elected officials, community leaders, news media and employees.
Ball Aerospace said it completed a $14.6 million expansion of its Westminster facility in 2011 and the F-35 program provides $60 million in economic impact across Colorado from 13 supplier locations.
