SAIC develops next-gen Army training system

Science Applications International Corp. has been tasked with continuing to develop the Army’s next generation computer-generated forces simulation training system under a five-year contract valued at more than $55 million.

The task order comes from the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Acquisition Center, which provides the Army with training devices, simulations, simulators and instrumentation for both training and testing, according to a Jan. 5 SAIC announcement.

Under the award, SAIC will continue enhancing the One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) system to increase its capabilities to a broad audience.

The OneSAF system is a next-generation computer-generated forces simulation that can represent a full range of operations, systems and control process, supporting all modeling and simulation domains.

The system allows users to configure computer-generated force systems exactly as they need to support their simulation requirements, the announcement said.

SAIC will help implement OneSAF enhancements by providing conceptual modeling, engineering, design, development, production, test and integration services among others.

The task order was awarded under the Simulator and Trainer Omnibus Contract II vehicle.

The work will be performed primarily in Orlando, Fla.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
