The U.S. Air Force has awarded Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) a follow-on contract for an Enterprise License Agreement (ELA). This latest award marks the third renewal since the contract’s inception. The contract provides licensing and support services for ASTi’s networked voice communications, radio-over-IP bridging to the Warrior Preparation Center (WPC) in Germany.
The ELA expands coverage to include ASTi RoIP systems at the Polygone Multinational Aircrew Electronic Warfare Tactics Facility in Germany. The expanded ELA integrates critical communications for joint forces and multinational, military training exercises. It also facilitates training across live and simulation domains, merging diverse systems into a seamless environment.
Since the early 2000s, ASTi has provided a voice infrastructure for the U.S. Air Force in Europe, linking military training facilities across global multilevel security networks. ASTi products deployed at the WPC cover communications among live-combat aircraft and ground forces, simulators and computer-based staff. Using centralized web services, WPC staff can remotely control tactical radios dispersed across Europe.
The ELA also includes bundled services that ensure operational effectiveness throughout the system’s life, reducing cost. Some of the services include software and information assurance maintenance and training and fielding services.
