ORLANDO, FL, 10-JUL-03 -- Lockheed Martin has received a contact award worth approximately $20 million to provide the Hellenic Army of Greece with upgraded tank driving simulators for M60 and Leopard tanks, and for upgraded tank firing simulators for the Leopard 1A5 tank. The Orlando-based unit of Lockheed Martin Training will supply state-of-the-art computer-generated forces capabilities, platoon networking, accessory tools and spares, technical manuals and technical support, as well as hardware and software upgrades and new simulators under a two-year contract awarded by the General Directorate for Armaments of the Hellenic Ministry of National Defence. The simulator systems provide objectively scored exercises to ensure positive training transfer for individuals and crews.
