FAAC Incorporated, a member of Arotech Corporation’s Training and Simulation Division (ATSD), will contribute to the US Army Soldier Virtual Trainer (SVT) Phase II contract, awarded to CAE. Following a competitive Phase I, with two teams selected to focus on Weapon Skill Development (WSD), the CAE team solution has been selected to proceed into Phase II.
The selection was made following a 12-month Phase I effort that included technology insertion and several Soldier touchpoints. The newly awarded SVT WSD Phase II is a 20-month effort to finalize development and baseline the production configuration of the WSD and the SVT Core.
The SVT program is part of the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) modernization effort to deliver a Synthetic Training Environment (STE) that will transform how the U.S. Army trains its Soldiers to meet the demands of future missions. As a component of the Army’s Synthetic Training Environment, SVT encompasses Weapon Skills Development, Use of Force, and Joint Fires training. It is expected to replace legacy training systems and fill critical training gaps, providing Soldiers the repetition necessary to train and succeed in multi-domain operations. WSD has been the first focus area with the expected production configuration to be fielded across the globe as the primary weapon skills trainer for the US Army.
As a member of the CAE team, FAAC Incorporated is serving as the lead WSD integrator and WSD software developer. FAAC will be integrating with the Government’s STE Software, SVT Core from CAE, and new weapons technologies from teammates Haptech and Serious Simulation. FAAC has leveraged its experience with weapon simulation from its US Army Virtual Convoy Training Suite, USMC Convoy Combat System, and MILO judgment-skills/use-of-force training product line to successfully support the CAE solution.
