CAE USA has been awarded subcontracts from Lockheed Martin to support the design, development and manufacture of six C-130J weapon systems trainers (WST) for the US Air Force (USAF) and Air National Guard.

"We are pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with Lockheed Martin on the design and development of training systems for the C-130J Super HERCULES," Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA, said. "The high-fidelity capabilities of these C-130J weapon systems trainers allow the USAF to increase the amount of synthetic training used throughout the overall training curriculum, which ultimately enhances safety, efficiency and mission readiness for the aircrews."

I/ITSEC is showcasing the future of innovation across defences and brings together key developments from the show. For more information please see MILITARY TECHNOLOGY #12/2017, available on booth #257; and frequently check back for more NEWS FROM THE FLOOR.


The C-130J WSTs are full-motion, full-mission simulators that accurately simulate the aircraft and its various missions. The simulators recreate the sounds, motion, virtual environment and all other systems required to provide a high-fidelity, realistic flight training environment. These six C-130J WSTs will be delivered to various air bases during 2020 and 2021. (Photo: CAE)
