Arotech’s training and simulation division FAAC has been awarded a contract to support the US Army’s Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS) Maintenance Program (ATMP).

Arotech’s training and simulation division FAAC has been awarded a contract to support the US Army’s Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS) Maintenance Program (ATMP).

FAAC has been selected to serve as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin’s Rotary and Mission Systems for the ATMP, which is a project under the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

ATMP has been designed to provide global maintenance support for TADSS, digital ranges and combat training centre (CTC) instrumentation systems.

FAAC president Kurt Flosky said: “We appreciate being part of Lockheed Martin’s ATMP team and look forward to providing outstanding support to the sites and systems we are responsible for.

“We are excited to expand our on-site presence and leverage FAAC’s decades of experience providing and supporting simulation solutions across all of the US Armed Forces, and to contribute to ATMP’s success.”

“In addition, FAAC can compete to offer support for other simulator upgrade or improvement efforts that exceed the current subcontract’s work scope.”

The army simulator maintenance subcontract is valued at up to $14m over a period of seven years.

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for providing technical expertise and staff maintenance positions of different skill levels.

The Army TADSS support will be provided at locations, including Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, as well as Camp Shelby and Camp McCain in Mississippi.

In addition, FAAC can compete to offer support for other simulator upgrade or improvement efforts that exceed the current subcontract’s work scope.

In March 2018, the US Army awarded a contract with a ceiling value of $3.53bn to Lockheed Martin to sustain more than 300,000 TADSS systems used in several locations worldwide.

Lockheed Martin is collaborating with partners PULAU, Cubic Global Defense, and other large and small businesses for the contract.
