Lockheed Martin Wins $104 Million for ARTS-V2

Advanced Radar Threat Simulator for Future Aircrew Training

Lockheed Martin has won a contract from the US Air Force valued at $104 million to develop, manufacture and field a threat simulator for future combat aircrew training.

Dubbed the Advanced Radar Threat System Variant 2 (ARTS-V2), the system will use radar threat emitters to simulate advanced medium-range surface-to-air missiles to support legacy and 5th-generation combat aircrew training requirements. The contract calls for the development and delivery of a Production Ready Assembly article and options to produce up to 20 systems.

It is vital our aircrews train against current and evolving surface-to-air threats,“ Bob Saxer, Vice President of Integrated Air and Missile Defense Emerging Programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, commented. “Our ARTS-V2 system has been designed to provide pilots an affordable, maintainable, high-fidelity training experience.”
