Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $1.9 million contract Megmar Logistics & Consulting of Poland for production of Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTRs) for the Polish MoD. The contract, signed on 22 December, represents the first procurement of ELGTRs by the MoD for use in its F-16 Block 52+ laser guided bomb (LGB) training programme.
ELGTR replicates the key performance and laser engagement requirements of PAVEWAY II LGB systems. Lockheed Martin will provide ELGTRs, technical data, logistics support and introduction to service training to the Polish Air Force through the Megmar contract.
"Megmar Logistics & Consulting has always been proud of delivering the best possible solutions to the Polish Armed Forces,” said Mariusz Maślarz, President and CEO. “We are very happy to add ELGTR – a top live-fire training solution - to our portfolio. We have identified ELGTR as the best option for the Polish Air Force and are very excited to enhance our warfighters’ capabilities again with another excellent product."
"Recognised worldwide as the only live-fire LGB training solution for warfighters," as the company puts it, the ELGTR (BDU-59B/B) is compatible with F/A-18, AV-8B, F-16 and various international aircraft. Lockheed Martin has delivered over 150,000 laser guided training rounds to US and international customers.
