ORLANDO, FLORIDA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $28.6 million contract to upgrade more than 60 Advanced Gunnery Training Systems (AGTS) for M1A1 and M1A2 main battle tanks.

The company will also provide 11 new M1A2 training systems as a part of the two-year contract awarded by the US Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

The AGTS is a simulator designed to train individuals, crews, platoons and companies in precision gunnery skills, enabling trainees to transition quickly to live fire or combat gunnery.

As part of the upgrade effort, Lockheed Martin will integrate the newest version of its Scalable Advanced Graphics Engine (SAGE) image generation technology, which draws from extensive visual databases to help war fighters experience a more detailed environment and encounter more realistic targets.

Additional upgrades include new graphic user interfaces, such as more pull-down menus for the instructor screens, making it even easier for instructors to monitor and control the training scenarios.

Lockheed Martin has delivered over 200 AGTS systems and upgrades to US Department of Defence customers with an additional 180 to foreign partner nations.
