Elbit Systems Ltd. was awarded a contract in an amount of approximately $180 million from the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMoD) to provide, operate and maintain the new Mission Training Center (MTC) for the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) F-16 fleet. The contract will be delivered over a three-year period with an additional 15-year period that will include operation and maintenance services.
The new Mission Training Center will be added to the existing MTC, that will be upgraded as part of the contract. Both MTCs will improve the quality of aircrew training, doubling the number of training sorties for the IAF’s F-16 and F-15 aircrew. The Air Force’s new MTC will include 10 simulators with advanced high resolution displays, accurate weapon simulation and Elbit’s arena generator, that combine to enable simulation of both current and future battlefield environments.
