The US Army has contracted BANC3 to continue providing research and development (R&D) and fielded system related engineering, software development, and sustainment services.
Under the $15m contracts, the company will provide the CERDEC NVESD R&D for a heads-up augmented reality (AR) system that delivers coordinated data and video visual from a weapon sight, a special transmitter and an Android apparatus (such as a smartphone) to the warfighter.
The soldier visual interface technology (SVIT) will provide better display resolution, brightness, see-through optics, full-colour visualisation and several wireless interfaces.
BANC3 president Babu Cherukuri said, "We are honoured by the opportunity to continue serving the army and this important mission, which we have supported for more than ten years."
The company will also provide the CECOM software engineering centre (SEC) lifecycle post-production software support (PPSS) of the tactical internet management system (TIMS), network support for the system deployment integration and network (SDIN), and maintenance of cyber posture for SDIN Cyber Security Cell.
BANC3 will additionally be required to deliver services that include maintaining SDIN on request.
The CECOM SEC will also receive PPSS services for the financial disclosure management (FDM) interactive web-based system.
