Arotech’s FAAC has received $10.2 million in funding for the US Army's Virtual Clearance Training Suite (VCTS) follow-on programme, Arotech announced on 10 September.

The funding, in the form of exercised options through January 2021, is for Phase 2 of the three planned phases associated with the follow-on contract originally awarded in 2017.

The VCTS has been fielded to 28 army training installations and operational units. It provides training for critical vehicle operator and crew tasks that can be repetitively trained in a simulator, and are too time consuming, resource constrained or dangerous to be conducted on actual equipment.

The follow-on effort envisions three phases, each providing a block upgrade of capabilities to the fielded VCTS systems. The upgrades will add new training capabilities and improve the system’s realism – enhancing the clearance operations training it provides and ensuring VCTS reflects current army route clearance missions and equipment.
