LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) received a $113 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to design, develop, field and sustain aircrew training devices for HH-60G Pave Hawk search and rescue helicopters.
Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will deliver eight HH-60G training simulators, spares and logistics support to the U.S. Air Force as part of the Pave Hawk Equivalent Distributive Repeatable Operative Simulators (PEDROS) trainer program. The simulators will be used to prepare aircrews for the full spectrum of personnel recovery, including combat search and rescue missions in multiple environments.
"PEDROS brings a unique deployable training and simulation capability directly to the aviation warfighter," said Monty Watson, director of aviation programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "We are leveraging manufacturing and logistics support from our Missiles and Fire Control business, as well as design expertise from our Mission Systems and Training business, to support the PEDROS training program."
The HH-60G PEDROS simulator will be embedded with aircrew squadrons, giving them increased access to training and simulation scenarios, improving aircrew readiness and eliminating the need to travel to training facilities. The simulator reduces aircraft maintenance costs, saves flight hours and includes software upgrades and enhancements that increase speed and capability. It is also re-locatable to support long-term deployments.
"Lockheed Martin has a legacy of delivering mission simulation and training systems for H-60 aircraft, including U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force special operations helicopters and Air Force combat rescue helicopters," said Vic Torla, business development director for training solutions at Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training. "The new HH-60G PEDROS simulators will provide affordable, on-site training options to keep aircrews certified and aircraft available for missions."
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 116,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
