Lockheed Martin wins $113M contract to provide training simulators

Contract supports PEDROS trainer program

Lockheed Martin has won a $113 million contract with the Air Force to design, develop, field and sustain aircrew training devices for HH-60G Pave Hawk search and rescue helicopters.

Lockheed will deliver eight HH-60G training simulators, spares and logistics support to the Air Force under the contract.

This contract supports the Pave Hawk Equivalent Distributive Repeatable Operative Simulators, or PEDROS, trainer program, which “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.

The training simulators will be used to prepare aircrews for the full spectrum of personnel recovery, including combat search and rescue missions in multiple environments, Lockheed Martin said in a release.

Simulators will reduce maintenance costs, save flight hours and includes software upgrades and enhancements that increase speed and capability, Lockheed said.
