FAAC to modernise Combat Convoy Simulators
Arotech's FAAC has received a contract to modernise the US Marine Corps’ (USMC) Combat Convoy Simulators (CCS).
The contract is worth up to $28.9 million with maximum contract duration of 57 months. The initial award funding is $17.7 million with up to an additional $11.2 million in options.
Under the base award contract, FAAC will modernise the hardware and software of the seven in-service USMC CCS located at five sites.
The CCS provides an immersive training environment for convoy operations. It provides training for vehicle crew in both vehicle and small arms weapon utilisation and can also be utilised to train C2 procedures and crew response to improvised explosive device attacks, ambush attacks, evolving enemy tactics and countermeasures.
Kurt Flosky, president, FAAC, said: ‘FAAC is very pleased to have been selected by the Marine Corp Systems Command to refurbish CCS and play a role in ensuring marines have a state-of-the-art training system to prepare for their combat missions.
‘Our solution leverages Department of Defense investments in other programmes plus our own corporate capabilities in the area of vehicle/crew-coordination simulators and use-of-force training systems to provide the marines with an open, modular product that is easy to maintain and upgrade in the future.’
