Lockheed Martin Training Delivers New MLV Tank Simulator to U.S. Army
ORLANDO, FL, 09-MAY-01 -- Lockheed Martin Information Systems (NYSE: LMT), a unit of Lockheed Martin Training, has completed delivery to Ft. Carson, Colorado, of 10 M1V Abrams tank simulators, 5 M2V Bradley Fighting Vehicle simulators, and 2 Dismounted Infantry workstations. These deliveries, worth more than $8 million, were accomplished two weeks ahead of schedule. The new Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) M1V configuration gives the Army increased flexibility by allowing training system conversions to take place in the field. The M1V modules, with enhanced display systems, were delivered in the A1 configuration and modified to the A2 configuration in the field.
Training on this system began two weeks ahead of schedule as a result of this installation, said Lockheed Martin Information Systems President John Hallal. The new M1 variant module increases diversity in the training scenario for the U.S. Army. CCTT is the first simulation system to address the Army's entire combined arms team.
Under the CCTT contract through the U.S. Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM), Lockheed Martin Information Systems is to perform work in Orlando to be completed by August 2001. The total number of CCTT modules deployed worldwide will exceed 250 with this delivery.
Lockheed Martin Training is a leader in the design, development, installation, operation and integration of training and simulation systems for global defense, civil, and commercial markets.
