Lockheed Martin has
awarded CAE USA a contract valued at US$7.7 million to perform
upgrades on U.S. Air Force C-130E/H simulators. CAE will upgrade
the motion and aural cue systems on eight simulators located at
Little Rock Air Force Base (AFB), Pope AFB, McChord AFB, Dyess AFB,
and the Minneapolis Air National Guard Base. In addition, CAE will
upgrade the Digital Radar Landmass System on two C-130H simulators
at Dobbins Air Force Base.
Lockheed Martin Information Systems is the prime contractor for
the USAF C-130 Aircrew Training System program. Under this program,
Lockheed Martin has overall project management responsibility for
training USAF C-130E and C-130H aircrews at sites in the United
States and internationally.
“Our C-130 training and simulation experience, evidenced
on this program as well as the new C-130J training systems, plays a
key role in ensuring the Hercules aircrews receive high-quality
training on their existing as well as new simulators,” said
John Lenyo, president and general manager, CAE USA.
Under a teaming agreement with LMIS, CAE USA is responsible for
providing a range of training and maintenance services, including
simulator upgrades, training device maintenance, and hardware and
software engineering support.
