Lockheed Martin will deliver a new simulation-based F-16 training environment for the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) under a contract valued at nearly $40 million. The family of training systems includes a comprehensive suite of full mission trainers and combat tactics trainers that can be networked together, aligning technologies to deliver advanced training while meeting affordability goals.

“Our solution builds on our proven fifth-generation training system with hardware and software tailored for the F-16,” said Sandy Samuel, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Training and Simulation Solutions. “By fielding a family of training systems, we can help the Royal Jordanian Air Force reserve higher fidelity devices for more advanced training scenarios and optimize their pilot throughput in training.”

Under this contract, Lockheed Martin will deliver the suite of simulators in 2018, also providing contractor logistics support services. The technology can be networked together to enable multiple pilots to train together on advanced scenarios.

RJAF’s F-16 training environment includes the Lockheed Martin-developed Scalable Advanced Graphics Engine (SAGE) image generator. SAGE blends the company’s expertise in military simulation with advanced gaming technology to provide richly detailed images and motion for increased realism in flight simulation.

Since 2001, Lockheed Martin has delivered F-16 training solutions and services to airmen from 15 allied nations. The simulation-based training environment replicates all systems, sensors and weapons for a total training solution for F-16 pilots.
