Jordan's F-16 pilots get new training environment from Lockheed Martin

Posted 28 September 2016 · Add Comment

The Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) F-16 pilots have been given a boost with a a new simulation-based F-16 training environment being developed for Amman by manufacturer Lockheed Martin.


The $40 contract from the RJAF calls for a family of training systems which 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.
