Lockheed Martin and Red 6 announced a recently completed a groundbreaking effort to integrate the latest Red 6 augmented reality (AR) training technology with a TF-50 simulator. This phase-one milestone facilitates broader evaluation of AR applications and accelerates their integration into the TF-50 aircraft design – all in support of increasing pilot readiness with the least amount of flight hours. Lockheed Martin is offering the TF-50 for upcoming, advanced fighter training programs of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and several international customers. The TF-50 is uniquely configured as a light attack fighter and an advanced trainer with modern enhancements.

“This milestone demonstrates Lockheed Martin’s commitment to meeting customer needs and advancing 21st Century Security solutions through purposeful digital investments and strategic partnerships. Technology integration such as this ensures that with the TF-50, pilots have the right tools to enable faster, more efficient training for fourth and fifth generation fighter missions and beyond,” said OJ Sanchez, vice president and general manager, Integrated Fighter Group at Lockheed Martin.
