USAF Awards Contract To Build Iraq F-16 Block 52 Full Mission Trainers

L-3 Link Simulation And Training Division To Build The Devices In Texas

The U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, OH, has awarded a contract to L-3 Communications' Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) division to build two F-16 Block 52 Full Mission Trainers (FMTs) for the Iraqi Air Force.

“L-3 is focused on diversifying our business, both internationally and commercially, and this award further demonstrates our commitment to that strategy,” said Steve Kantor, president of L-3’s Electronic Systems Group. “We have long been a leader in military simulation and training, and this is our first-ever military simulator sale to Iraq.”

The F-16 Block 52 FMTs, being built at L-3’s Arlington, Texas facility, will incorporate the company’s HD World integrated simulation product line. High-definition databases, image generators, SimuSphere HD-9 visual displays and physics-based processing technology will produce highly realistic and relevant fighter training environments within a geo-specific visual system database of Iraq.

The FMTs will incorporate L-3’s simulated Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System, enabling pilots to view flight information wherever they turn their head while conducting a flight. This simulation capability will allow pilots to practice control of aircraft targeting systems and sensors. “We welcome Iraq as our 11th international customer for F-16 training systems,” said Lenny Genna, president of L-3 Link. “Our immersive, high-definition simulation solution will enable Iraqi Air Force F-16 pilots to gain training credit equivalent to live training while conducting new pilot and advanced skills training.”
