Lockheed Martin has won a five-year $146 million contract to support US Air Force special-operations training at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico. The company has also won a US Army contract, potentially worth $500 million over five years, to develop distributed simulation technology.

Under the USAF Mission Training Support System contract, Lockheed Martin will support simulators used for training of combat-ready crews for Special Operations Command Sikorsky MH-53Js and MH-60Gs, Lockheed Martin HC-130Ps ad MC-130Ps and Bell UH-1Hs. Previously, the company provided support only for the helicopter training conducted at Kirtland.
