The DiSTI Corporation has received a $4.7 million delivery order from the United States Army. As part of the Family of Maintenance Trainers initiative, DiSTI will provide Diagnostic Troubleshooting Trainers (DTT) for the M1 Abrams battle tank and the classroom hardware necessary for the program's execution.
The total solution will extend the existing Abrams DTT prototype lessons to include 80 maintenance and troubleshooting lessons and procedures. The simulated platform is the M1A2 SEP v3. Abrams M1A2 SEPV3 (System Enhanced Package) is a modernized configuration of the Abrams main battle tank (MBT) in service with the U.S. Army. The new version offers enhanced protection and survivability, as well as higher lethality than its predecessors. DiSTI's solution will allow students to train in an advanced 3D learning environment to garner the skill necessary for AMPV maintenance.

The Family of Maintenance Trainers is a program developed by the U.S. Army to establish a Common Core software baseline to replace its current software architecture with a solution adaptable to address new and emerging technologies for future training needs.
