L-3 Link to build F-16 Mission Training Center for Air Force pilots in Germany

F-16 training & simulation

ARLINGTON, Texas, 4 Feb. 2013. L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) won a U.S. Air Force contract to build an F-16 Mission Training Center (MTC) system for use at Spangdahlem Air Base (AB), Germany. 

“Fast jet training requires a high-definition simulation solution, and L-3 Link is proud to deliver this advanced training capability to the U.S. Air Force and its F-16 pilots,” says Dan Kelly, L-3 Link’s vice president of Air Force programs. “Military flight simulation realism being exhibited on the F-16 MTC program today is maximizing pilot operational readiness while reducing overall training costs.”

Each F-16 MTC system includes four high-definition simulators, four instructor/operator  stations, two brief/debrief systems, and a mission observation center. The Boeing Company is providing instructor/operator stations as well as mission observation centers and brief/debrief systems for each F-16 MTC.

At the heart of the F-16 MTC is L-3 Link’s HD World integrated simulation product line. High-definition displays, image generators, databases, and physics processing technology combine to create highly realistic and relevant fighter training environments.

F-16 MTCs installed and operational at Nellis Air Force Base (AFB), Nev., and Hill AFB, Utah, are delivering enhanced readiness; pilots training in the systems can detect, determine the orientation of, recognize, and identify targets with the same fidelity as they would when conducting an actual sortie.

This award marks the seventh F-16 MTC system that L-3 Link has delivered or is in the process of integrating. Another F-16 MTC system is currently being installed at Shaw AFB, S.C. The program’s Training Systems Support Center in Arlington, Texas, also houses an F-16 MTC.
