AMERICAN SYSTEMS is one of five companies awarded a position on a five-year, $250 million contract to provide aviation training services in support of Security Assistance programs for the U.S. Army’s Security Assistance Training Management Organization (SATMO).

The SATMO program is a component of the U.S. Security Cooperation Enterprise that prepares, deploys, and sustains Security Assistance Teams (SATs) throughout the world. SATMO, a subordinate command of the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command (USASAC), was initiated in the early 1970s by the U.S. Army and conducts training worldwide in support of Department of Defense and Department of State Security Cooperation plans and programs.

Under the terms of the contract, AMERICAN SYSTEMS will provide SATs to facilitate aviation security assistance programs. Services performed will include basic flight crew skills, highly technical flight skills, operational planning skills, and maintenance technical advice and assistance.  Work locations under this contract may include Afghanistan, Indonesia, Iraq, Turkey, Tunisia, Taiwan, Korea, and other locations based upon emerging U.S. Government requirements.

“AMERICAN SYSTEMS is proud to have the opportunity to continue our decade-plus of supporting this important program,” said Peter Smith, President and CEO of AMERICAN SYSTEMS. “It is an honor to partner with the U.S. Army to help fortify our foreign allies’ warfighters in our common fight against evildoers worldwide.”
