The BGI-ASI Joint Venture, formed between BGI LLC and Aero Simulation, Inc., has been awarded a single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a ceiling $202 million over five years to develop the next generation of Integrated Navigation, Seamanship, and Shiphandling Trainers (NSST) by the US Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division.

The BGI-ASI team includes Defense Maritime Solutions (DMS), with their maritime software suite that is currently fielded in US Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security maritime trainers and commercial shipping maritime trainers globally; and Dignitas Technologies, a Modeling, Simulation and Training provider, which rounds out the NSST core team.
