C-130 Rehost, Flight Model, and Control Loading

Tampa, Florida (February 2016) – Aero Simulation Inc. (ASI) is pleased to announce its latest contract award to provide new computational technology (rehosts) of eleven C-130 Aircrew Training Devices (ATDs) at Little Rock AFB, Arkansas, McChord Joint Base, Washington, Minneapolis Air National Guard (ANG) Minnesota, and Dobbins Air Reserve Base (ARB), Georgia. This contract with Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training (MST) is a follow-on contract to ASI’s C-130 Electric Control Loading (ECL) and Aero Upgrade for ten ATDs which was awarded in 2014. The combination of these two programs will provide a state of the art computational system with a new Flight Dynamics model and Primary Flight Controls updates to meet the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) Level C performance for the C-130H training community.
These programs require the design, development, integration and test of new control loaders, a new flight model and new computational systems. Due to the timing of these programs, most of the devices will have the new flight model and control loaders prior to getting the computer upgrades.
“ASI is pleased to continue our successful programs for Lockheed Martin MST in their support of these extremely important training devices.” said Dr. Michael McCarthy, ASI’s President. “Our proposed solution will improve both the training quality and device availability into the next decade”.
