Lockheed Martin has
been awarded a contract valued at up to $287 million (if all
options are exercised), to provide C-130J training systems and
services to the U.S. Air Force. The Air Force recently exercised
options totaling $51.9 million to begin work immediately on the new
This contract follows a multi-year C-130J aircraft acquisition
award to Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company earlier this year,
valued in excess of $4 billion. Under that contract, the U.S. Air
Force ordered 40 C-130J aircraft and the U.S. Marine Corps ordered
20 KC-130J tankers.
As prime contractor for the training systems, Lockheed Martin
Information Systems has overall responsibility for program
management, training equipment, spares procurement, and integration
of training services. The contract will provide eight new trainers
as well as training instruction and support to qualify and sustain
the Air Force's C-130J crew force through the year 2010.
Design and manufacture
of the training systems has been subcontracted to CAE under
Lockheed Martin's C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System
(MATS) program. CAE will build four new aircrew trainers, three
maintenance trainers, a loadmaster trainer, and provide operation
and maintenance support.
All of the new training systems will be delivered to either
Little Rock Air Force Base (AR), or Pope AFB (NC).
