$2.5-Million Simulator Contract Awarded Tano For Navy's LSD Program

The Tano Corporation, New Orleans, La., recently received a $2.5-million contract from Lockheed Shipbuilding and Construction Co. of Seattle, Wash., for a training simulator to be used in the U.S. Navy's LSD-41 program.

The simulator will provide both operation and maintenance training on the machinery plant control system for the LSD-41 class of amphibious assault vessels.

Under a separate contract awarded previously, Tano is providing control systems for the first three LSD (Landing Ship Dock) class vessels: the LSD-41, LSD-42 and LSD-43. All three vessels are under construction at Lockheed.

The training simulator is scheduled for installation in the spring of next year at the Navy's Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Illinois. Tano designs, manufactures, and markets computerbased electronic systems for marine, oil and gas, and energy management applications.
