FAAC to support VCTS programme
The five year contract will include three phases, each providing a block upgrade of capabilities to the fielded VCTS systems. The first phase is funded at $5.7 million, with the other phases awarded as option contract line items.
VCTS is fielded to 28 training installations and operational units. The suite provides training for critical vehicle operator and crew tasks that are considered too time consuming, resource constrained, or dangerous to be conducted on actual equipment.
Under this contract, new training capabilities will be added to VCTS and the system's realism will be improved, enhancing the clearance operations training it provides and ensuring VCTS reflects the army's current route clearance mission and equipment.
