  • 09-Apr-2013 09:10 EDT

Lockheed Martin received a $253 million contract to begin work on F-15SA pilot and maintenance training systems for the Royal Saudi Air Force. The technologies will provide a comprehensive ground-based training environment for Saudi Arabia's F-15SA modernization program. Pilots will complete air-to-air combat, air-to-surface missions, air combat maneuvers, and tactical intercepts with 360-degree full mission trainers. As a first for F-15 training, the systems will feature a single dome over the dual-seat cockpit to enable crew coordination training. Lockheed Martin will also deliver egress, avionics, and desktop trainers for procedure training by pilots. For maintainers, Lockheed Martin will provide virtual systems to enable training without the actual aircraft. The systems include basic maintenance, landing gear and arresting hook, armament, flight controls, and jet fuel starter trainers. Lockheed Martin will deliver the training systems by 2020. Work will be performed in Akron, OH, and Orlando, FL.
