CAE USA has been awarded subcontracts from Lockheed Martin to support the design, development and manufacture of six C-130J weapon systems trainers (WSTs) for the United States Air Force and Air National Guard.
The orders for these six C-130J WSTs were booked during CAE's second quarter of fiscal year 2018 and included in the quarterly earnings announcement done on November 10, 2017, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
"The C-130J weapon systems trainers allow the Air Force to increase the amount of synthetic training used throughout the overall training curriculum, which ultimately enhances safety, efficiency and mission readiness for the aircrews," Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA.
The C-130J WSTs are full-motion, full-mission simulators that simulate the aircraft and its various missions. The simulators recreate the sounds, motion, virtual environment and all other systems required to provide a high-fidelity, realistic flight training environment. These six C-130J WSTs will be delivered to various air bases during 2020 and 2021.
