HUNT VALLEY, Md., 29 April 2008. AAI Services, a subsidiary of AAI Corp.--an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. company--has received a competitive award from Lockheed Martin to design and develop the aircraft systems maintenance trainer (ASMT) in support of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

AAI teamed with The DiSTI Corp. of Orlando, Fla., a developer of Human Machine Interface software for businesses, governments, and the military, to propose a training media solution that combines realistic aircraft simulation with high-fidelity 2D/3D images in a classroom training environment.

The ASMT will provide training for student maintainers on ground operation, maintenance, and testing procedures for the F-35 aircraft systems.

The work will be performed at AAI Services' Charleston, S.C., Training and Simulation facility and at DiSTI in Orlando, and delivered to the Integrated Training Center at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.

The ASMT is one element of the F-35 Training System, a family of training devices that is being developed by Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support.
