Science Applications International Corp. has won an $18 million task order from the Army to further develop the capabilities of a simulation tool.
The Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Program awarded the two-year task order. The simulation tool is called the Synthetic Environment Core.
The tool is part of the Army's Common Virtual Environment initiative designed to link virtual training simulation devices into an integrated and interoperable training system.
SAIC received the award under the Army's Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command Omnibus Contract.
Under a previous task order, SAIC defined a virtual simulation architecture, implemented common virtual components and modified One Semi-Automated Force to support the virtual simulation domain.
"Synthetic Environment Core establishes the standard for virtual simulation architectures, providing key interoperable capabilities for future and legacy Army products, including the OneSAF program, which is also supported by SAIC," said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
"This ability enables the Army to invest in the development of specific capabilities rather than in redundant components," Seay said.
SAIC, of San Diego, ranks No. 5
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
