DiSTI to upgrade Stryker trainers

11th November 2016 - 14:47 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DiSTI has been awarded a $4.4 million Phase IVa contract from the US Army to upgrade the Stryker Maintenance Training System (MTS) and Diagnostic Troubleshooting Trainer (DTT) at Fort Lee, Virginia, it announced on 9 November.

The award includes the update of maintenance and troubleshooting procedures for the army's Stryker vehicles and subsystems, including the remote weapons system, suspension and engine of the infantry carrier vehicle and the anti-tank guided missile.

Existing training will be converted from a legacy 2D user interface into a 3D Virtual Environment (VE) that DiSTI developed and recently fielded for the Stryker mobile gun system in MTS Phase IV. A total of 158 existing procedures will be upgraded to 3D VE, and the latest interactive electronic technical manual will be set up, along with new software in DTT classrooms. The company will also provide instructor and operator training.

The Stryker MTS is used to train the army's military occupational specialty. It includes the MTS DTT and hands-on trainers as well as part task trainers.

DiSTI will work with a team including Rockwell Collins Simulation & Training Solutions, which is the incumbent contractor for the original Stryker MTS programme.
