ARLINGTON, Texas, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Two Pakistan air force F-16C training simulators are to be modernized with SimuSphere HD-9 visual system displays from L-3 Link Simulation & Training of Texas.

The contract, a modification to an existing award, was given to L-3 Link by the U.S. Air Force.

SimuSphere HD-9 features enhanced, realistic tactical training through the use of high-definition databases, image generators and the SimuSphere HD-9 visual display. Through programming, it will also simulate geographically specific environment scenarios.

"This award demonstrates the value that SimuSphere HD-9 will bring to military fast jet training," said L-3 Link President Leonard Genna. "SimuSphere HD-9, combined with the trainers' overall HD World capabilities, will allow Pakistan air force F-16 pilots to gain training credit equivalent to live training."

L-3 Link said the upgraded F-16 Block 52 aircrew training devices will also feature inclusion of the company's Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System.

The systems will be delivered to Pakistan and installed next year, the company said.
