Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) has won a $156,578,150 contract modification to provide flight training equipment to the U.S. Air Force.

Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command and Special Operations Command will use the devices for initial qualification and refresher training.

Aircrews and maintainers will train on the same device for the first time, said Jim Weitzel, vice president of training solutions, in a company announcement.

The Defense Department said Lockheed will provide:

  • three integrated cockpit systems trainers
  • a loadmaster fuselage trainer
  • five loadmaster part task trainers
  • eight enhanced cargo handling systems for the C-130J fleet.

The company said it has managed the C-130J program since 2000.

Work under the firm-fixed-price modification is expected to be completed by March 31, 2016.

Once finished, the trainers will be delivered to Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is the contracting activity.

Early last month, Lockheed won $89 million U.S. Army contract for intelligence and training support.
