Mission Grip

Main responsibility of MGRIP is to provide user interface for weapon systems, targeting system, digital moving map and multi functional displays. 

MGRIP consists of co-pilot Left Hand Grip, co-pilot Right hand Grip, pilot Grip and two Electronic Control Units. The Electronic Unit is a low power embedded LRU which monitors the switch positions and reports this information to the mission computers through dedicated serial buses.

The Handles of MGRIP are ergonomically designed to maximize the performance of pilot control on mission equipment. NVIS compatible illuminated labels are implemented on GRIPS for night operations. Redundant electronic control units improve the reliability of MGRIP on harsh environmental conditions.
