L-3 Communications announced that its Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) division has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright- Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. The company will build two F-16 Block 52 Full Mission Trainers (FMTs) for the Iraqi Air Force.
The F-16 Block 52 FMTs, being constructed at L-3’s Arlington, Texas facility, 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. The simulation capability will also allow pilots to practice control of aircraft targeting systems and sensors.
Since the 1970s, L-3 Communications has delivered over 140 F-16 training devices in support of the U.S. Air Force, Air National Guard, and international militaries.
