Lockheed Martin to deliver F-16 training environment to Royal Jordanian Air Force
“Our solution builds on our proven fifth-generation training system with hardware and software tailored for the F-16,” Lockheed Martin Training and Simulation Solutions Vice President Sandy Samuel said. “By fielding a family of training systems, we can help the Royal Jordanian Air Force reserve higher fidelity devices for more advanced training scenarios and optimize their pilot throughput in training.”
The training environment will include Lockheed Martin’s Scalable Advanced Graphics Engine (SAGE) image generator, which uses advanced gaming technology in conjunction with Lockheed Martin’s existing military simulation technology to create more realistic simulations. Through SAGE, Lockheed Martin offers improved details and improved motion simulation that better mimics real-life situations.
Lockheed Martin will deliver the F-16 training environment in 2018 and provide contractor logistics support service. The environment will allow pilots to train on all F-16 systems, sensors and weapons.
The Royal Jordanian Air Force contract builds upon Lockheed Martin’s 15 years of experience in F-16 training solutions and services, which it has provided for 15 allied nations since 2001.
