An L-3 Communications division has won recompete contract to provide technical services to the U.S. Air Force for a simulation program.
The contract has a base period that covers 26 devices used in military exercises that expires in September, L-3 said Monday.
L-3’s link simulation and training group holds options to build 50 units for the Predator mission aircrew training system and is responsible for maintaining concurrency with unmanned aircraft until 2019.
“The U.S. Air Force became our first unmanned aircraft system training customer in 2005,” said Steve Kantor, L-3 electronic systems group president.
Kantor also said the company will work to help MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper combat operators have training realism.
The PMATS system is intended to help create a controlled environment for soldiers to handle aircraft, weapons and communication platforms operated during missions.
