L-3 Link Simulation & Training, ARLINGTON, has been awarded a U.S. Air Force contract modification for the F-16 Iraq training program. The contract, from the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, calls for constructing the Iraqi Air Force two F-16 Block 52 weapon tactics trainers, two brief-debrief systems and one mission observation center. This contract modification follows L-3 Link's November 2012 award to build two F-16 Block 52 full mission trainers for the Iraqi Air Force. The F-16 block 52 full mission trainers under construction willallow pilots to conduct simulated air-to-air and air- to-ground combat exercises. During training exercises, Iraqi F-16 pilots will wear L-3 Link's simulated joint helmet- mounted cueing system to control sensors and weapons through visual cueing. www.link.com.
