Lockheed Martin says it will use flight simulation software designer SimiGon’s technology in its new training computer programme.

SimiGon’s SIMbox application will be used to run Lockheed’s F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter training programme.

The software will allow F-35 pilots to use personal computers or laptops to learn and practise skills ranging from pre-flight checks to weapons handling.

Following the announcement, SimiGon’s shares soared 19.5p to 77.5p.
