Lockheed Martin announced Monday that it has won $80 million training contracts to advance C-130 aircrew and maintenance training from the US Air Force.

The contracts include delivery of C-130J Air Mobility Command (AMC) weapon systems trainer and C-130J AMC loadmaster part task trainer at Yokota Air Base in Yokota, Japan, and a KC-130J weapons systems trainer and spares, support equipment and technical data.

The contracts also include C-130 aircrew training system operations and maintenance services and C-130J Training System Support Center services.

Under the C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System (MATS) II contract, Lockheed Martin is delivering a number of aircrew and maintainer devices to support ground-based training, including high fidelity weapons systems trainers, part-task trainers and training aids.

Lockheed Martin's legacy of C-130 training also includes the C-130 Aircrew Training System (ATS) program, where the company trains nearly 8,000 domestic and international airmen each year.

Lockheed Martin will continue to upgrade C-130 ATS training devices to maintain concurrency with aircraft platforms and deliver enhanced systems and models for increased reliability and supportability this year.
