Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has received a potential eight-year, $200 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to support aircraft schoolhouse operations and aircrew training efforts of the Air Force Special Operations Command.
The company said Thursday it will help AFSOC engineer and manage the cybersecurity of training devices to ensure concurrence with aircraft platforms.
Tom Gordon, vice president of Lockheed’s training and simulation solutions business, said the company has supported AFSOC for more than 27 years and intends to continue helping the command prepare for missions.
The Air Commando Training and Support program will offer aircrew instruction, mission rehearsal and training tools to the service branch’s special operations forces.
Lockheed will also provide logistics support for AFSOC’s C-130J and CV-22 weapons systems through the program.
