The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS) awarded Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) a contract for an Enterprise License Agreement (ELA). ASTi's subscription-based enterprise solution will provide a bundle of product licensing and ongoing services supporting the PM TRASYS Live Virtual Constructive Training Environment (LVC-TE, a.k.a. Project Tripoli) program. Project Tripoli is a top-priority USMC modernization initiative that will create an integrated live and synthetic all-domain combat training environment integrated across the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.
PM TRASYS selected ASTi's enterprise solution because it met Project Tripoli's set of requirements for enhanced features and technical performance, interoperability, scalability and extensibility at a reduced total cost of ownership. ASTi's Voisus communications product will provide the Marines with a common, networked voice solution, replacing multiple commercial and government off-the-shelf (GOTS) systems that hampered critical training due to obsolescence and sustainment issues.
Under this contract, ASTi will integrate Voisus into the Marines' LVC-TE system of systems to provide a virtualized, cloud-ready voice communications infrastructure. Voisus will link live-combat aircraft, ground forces, Naval ships, simulators, VBS4 tactical gaming suites and computer-based staff.
The ELA also includes a comprehensive service package that includes: software and Information Assurance (IA) maintenance; onsite fielding and training; help desk services; engineering services; and a discounted hardware catalog.
ASTi will field Voisus capabilities at initial Project Tripoli sites, including: System Integration Lab (SIL) and PM TRASYS Integration & Innovation Lab (PIIL), in Orlando, Florida; and Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC), MCB Twentynine Palms, California.
