SAIC construirá simulador de vehículo de combate

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 21, 2004. A team led by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today it was awarded a contract from the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). The SAIC team will design, develop, and deliver common driver trainer system components and Stryker combat vehicle-specific crew modules as part of the Army’s Common Driver Trainer Program.
The common driver trainer system consists of simulators, which will be used to train members of the armed forces in the operation of the Stryker combat vehicle being fielded to Fort Knox, Ky., and Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.
Funding for the initial fifteen-month term of this firm-fixed-price contract, which includes a time and materials contract line item number, is $6.9 million. If all option years are exercised, and all performance-based awards are realized, the total cumulative value of the contract is $9.1 million. Under the terms of the contract, SAIC and its teammates will conduct the development and production, system-level integration, testing, delivery and initial maintenance of the simulators.
Members of the SAIC team include FAAC of Ann Arbor, Mich., Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) of El Segundo, Calif., and Engineering & Computer Simulations, Inc. (ECS) of Orlando, Fla.
«We are excited to have the Stryker variant of the common driver trainer,» said LTC Joe Giunta, PEO STRI’s product manager for Ground Combat Tactical Trainers. «The program conditions now can allow the Army to achieve a significant life cycle cost savings and greater levels of interoperability within the overall Army driver trainer mission.»
«SAIC’s ability to develop and integrate complex, software-intensive systems, combined with FAAC’s industry leadership in driver trainer production, CSC’s virtual trainer maintenance expertise and ESC’s database development experience, provides the Army with a team that can satisfy its current and future requirements for a family of common driver trainers,» said Beverly J. Kitaoka, senior vice president and general manager of SAIC’s Training & Simulation Solutions business unit. «We look forward to working with PEO STRI to ensure that America’s armed forces get the best driver training possible.»
SAIC will manage the Stryker Driver Trainer contract from its offices in Orlando, Fla., with work to be performed in both Orlando, and at FAAC’s facilities in Ann Arbor, Mich.
