Lockheed Martin is looking to market its flight simulator technology in the Middle East region, where the United Arab Emirates aims to fulfill trainer system requirements for its air force, Aviation International News reported Monday.
David Donald writes Lockheed Martin has transported its T-50 Golden Eagle simulator to Dubai in a move aimed to further build up market presence in the region.
The T-50 system is designed for training operations using virtual radars in a supersonic environment, according to the report.
Lockheed collaborated with Korea Aerospace Industries to build the simulator and the South Korean air force uses the T-50 trainer and TA-50 lead-in fighter/weapons trainer models, the report says.
Donald writes the company could also reach an agreement with Poland for the T-50 system early next year as proposal submissions end Wednesday.
