SAIC wins US Army training contract
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide the Synthetic Core (SE) Environment, a set of virtual components that will develop and sustain the Army's Common Virtual Environment (CVE) for simulation and training programmes. The contract is for the support of the US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, & Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
SE Core provides a wide range of virtual products the Army needs to execute combined arms and joint training as well as mission planning and rehearsals at home stations and deployed locations. These products include operational training terrain databases, models, simulation architecture connectivity, and gaming interfaces that support virtual simulation devices and interoperable, integrated LVC training environments.
According to SAIC, the US Army requires a fully integrated live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training environment. The mission of PEO STRI is to support the Army by providing simulation, training, and testing capabilities. SE Core will support the Army's LVC training environment by linking current and future virtual simulation devices into an interoperable, full-spectrum training capability. The CVE will connect to gaming training enablers and the live and constructive training environments for an integrated LVC capability.
The single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract has a one-year base period of performance four one-year options, for a total potential value of up to $222 million if all options are exercised.
