Leidos wins Common Driver Trainer contract
The CDT includes hardware and software components that establish a baseline for current and future US and NATO combat vehicle driver trainer variants. It is comprised of assistant driver stations, after-action review, student training stations and is designed to work with an instructor operator station.
CDT simulation provides training in critical driver or crew tasks that are either time consuming, resource constrained or too dangerous to conduct on actual equipment.
The CDT systems will delivered to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, where they will improve the current driver training throughput capacity.
John Fratamico, president of the Leidos Advanced Solutions Group, said: 'The development and implementation of these simulations are vital to the initial training and ultimate success of tactical vehicle operators and crews.
'As the original developer of the CDT product line, Leidos understands the value of these simulators, and our team looks forward to fielding these new systems at Fort Leonard Hood in further support of the PEO STRI's mission to achieve army readiness.'
The contract has a 16-month option period. Will all options exercised, the contract is worth more than $10 million.
