ARLINGTON, Texas, April 8 (UPI) -- L-3 Link Simulation & Training is to provide technical support services for the Polish Air Force's F-16 training program.
The services, under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award from the Polish Ministry of National Defense Support Directorate, will be for all training devices L-3 Link has delivered over the past decade to the Polish Air Force to ensure that the training systems remain concurrent with platform changes.
L-3 Link will also address system obsolescence issues and include maintenance and repair of all F-16 training device, provision of spares, and performance of equipment modifications.
The contract will be in effect until the fourth quarter of 2018, L-3 Link said. Its value will be determined by the task orders from the Polish Air Force.
L-3 Link F-16 training equipment used by Poland includes one F-16C/D Block 52 Full Mission Trainer, two squadron-level trainers, instructor operator stations and computational systems.
"The Polish F-16 Aircrew Training System was designed from the outset to maintain concurrency with the advanced capabilities of the F-16C/D Block 52 aircraft," said Lenny Genna, president of L-3 Link. "As the original equipment manufacturer for these training devices, L-3 Link is uniquely capable of making updates that will improve training effectiveness and efficiency."
