Britannica Knowledge secures US Army contract
Britannica Knowledge Systems has secured a $70 million contract to supply its Fox Training Management System to the US Army. It will form part of the Army Training Information System (ATIS) programme.
Fox will unify Training Management, Training Scheduling, Resource Management, Training Development and Learning Management capabilities into a comprehensive integrated environment.
Asher Dagan, CEO of Britannica Knowledge Systems, said: ‘Britannica brings a unique combination of advanced technology, comprehensive capabilities, and a deep understanding of the needs and objectives of training in the area of defence. One of the requirements of the US Army was a commercial off-the-shelf system configured for the army’s specific needs and for managing the extensive training of Army units and individuals.’
The contract will see the Fox Training Management System replace over 30 separate systems currently in use by the US Army.
