Lockheed Martin wins C-130 training contract

9th January 2012 - 16:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has been awarded a contract by the US Air Force to upgrade weapons systems trainers used in the C-130 Aircrew Training System (ATS) II. According to the company the contract is worth $24 million.

The C-130 ATS II programme provides a comprehensive academic and simulation training programme for C-130 aircrews worldwide. Under the upgrade work the visual system and imagery databases in the weapons systems simulators will be updated to provide the most advanced and realistic training.

According to Lockheed Martin, the new visual system will provide enhanced illumination in the cockpit, advanced visual scenes and the latest infrared-enabled night vision training. The visual databases will also be upgraded to the same used by the new C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System, furthering interoperability across aircrew training.

The improvements are scheduled to take place through 2014.
