Lockheed Nails Air Force Work

By Nick Wakeman, Staff Writer

JULY 12 ? Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md., will provide combat air crew training and mission rehearsal operations services under a $277 million contract for the Air Force Special Operations Command and Air Education Training Command.

Under the six-year contract, Lockheed Martin will provide air crew training, mission operations and support at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico and Hulburt Field in Florida. The contract was awarded by the Air Force Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force Base in Utah.

Winning the Aircrew Training and Rehearsal Support contract, known as ATARS, builds on Lockheed Martin's long relationship with the Air Force and the company's training and simulation capabilities, said Lockheed Martin Information Systems President John Hallal.

"Our commitment to leverage new technology and commonality across similar programs, including the C-130 Aircrew Training System, delivers more value to our customers while reducing cost," he said. "Distributed mission operations, mission rehearsal and training development as required in ATARS, further expands our extensive training and simulation portfolio."

Lockheed Martin is engaged across the simulation continuum providing virtual, live and constructive training systems to military and commercial customers. Within the previous year, the Orlando, Fla.-based Information Systems unit has received major Defense Department training contracts covering all aviation platforms for the Navy and Marine Corps.
