lockheed martinLockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a $113 million contract to build eight training simulators for the U.S. Air Force‘s Pave Hawk search-and-rescue helicopters.

Monty Watson, director of aviation programs at Lockheed’s missiles and fire control business, said the company intends to give warfighters deployable training and simulation tools.

The contract for the Pave Hawk Equivalent Distributive Repeatable Operative Simulators program also covers spare parts and logistics services for the Air Force.

Aircrew squadrons will have the simulators embedded into the helicopters as the Air Force aims to reduce or eliminate the need to travel to different training facilities.
