The DiSTI Corporation has received a $3.56 million delivery order to provide virtual training solutions for the United States Army. DiSTI will provide Diagnostic Troubleshooting Trainers (DTT) for the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) along with classroom hardware as part of the Family of Maintenance Trainers (FMT) initiative.

“The AMPV is essential to the future of the U.S. Army and provides strategic protection and mobility,” said DiSTI CEO John Hayward. “It is imperative that the training for this complex vehicle be effective. DiSTI is honored that the U.S. Army has selected our team to fulfill this need.”

The total solution will extend the existing AMPV DTT prototype lessons to include 80 maintenance and troubleshooting lessons and procedures. DiSTI’s solutions provide the U.S. Army with immersive, cost-effective training that improves readiness and efficacy. Studies have shown that virtual training increases student throughput. DiSTI's solution will allow students to train in an advanced 3D learning environment to garner the skill necessary for AMPV maintenance.

Installation of classrooms featuring the AMPV DTT trainers will occur in Fort Lee, Virginia, Camp Shelby, Mississippi and Fort Benning, Georgia.

The Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) provides significant capabilities concerning force protection, survivability, mobility, and power generation to incorporate the Army’s inbound network and other future technologies. The Family of Maintenance Trainers (FMT) is a program developed by the U.S. Army to establish a Common Core (CC) software baseline to replace its current stove-piped software architecture with a solution adaptable to address new and emerging technologies for future training needs.
