Lockheed Martin has received a contact award worth approximately $20 million to provide the Hellenic Army of Greece with upgraded tank driving simulators for M60 and Leopard tanks. The contract also calls for upgraded tank firing simulators for the Leopard 1A5 tank.

Lockheed Martin Training will supply computer-generated forces capabilities, platoon networking, accessory tools and spares, technical manuals and technical support, as well as hardware and software upgrades and new simulators under a two-year contract awarded by the Hellenic Ministry of National Defence.

The simulator systems are said to provide objectively scored exercises to ensure positive training transfer for individuals and crews.

Lockheed Martin will add low life-cycle cost, open system architecture and modular design to the current training systems, as well as new technology.

The Orlando-based unit’s expertise includes developing and fielding network trainers such as the Close Combat Tactical Trainer for the US Army and the Combined Arms Tactical Trainer for the UK’s Ministry of Defence.
