Evans & Sutherland (E&S) has won a US Air Force contract, potentially worth $70 million, to replace the visual systems on up to 25 transport-aircraft flight-simulators. Under the $13 million initial phase of the five-year Air Mobility Command Visual Upgrade Effort (AMC VUE) contract, E&S will upgrade the visuals on four Boeing KC-135 tanker simulators, with deliveries beginning in August 1997. E&S lost an earlier visual-upgrade contract for USAF bomber and fighter simulators to Lockheed Martin.
