Lockheed Martin is to upgrade the visual systems on simulators used to train US Air Force special-operations crews. The upgrades are part of the US company's new five-year, $146 million, Mission Training Support System (MTSS) contract for the special-forces training centre at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico. Four Lockheed Martin Compu-Scene V image-generators on Sikorsky MH-53J, TH-53J and MH-60G and Lockheed HC-130P simulators will be upgraded with reliability and maintainability improvements, enhanced forward-looking infra-red (FLIR) and night-vision-goggle simulation and special effects, such as anti-aircraft fire.
