November 21, 2018 -- Leonardo DRS has received a contract from Cubic Global Defense to deliver more than 500 P5 combat training system (P5CTS) internal subsystems for the F-35 Lightning II air combat training system, the company announced on 16 November.
The P5CTS internal subsystems enable real-time, live monitoring and recorded mission data of air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air training scenarios for both real-time training and post-mission analysis. Unlike the wing-mounted P5CTS pods, the internal subsystem is placed inside the F-35.
The P5CTS subsystems will be delivered to Cubic Corporation over the next four years as part of Lockheed Martin’s F-35 production Lots 12-14.
