TCS wins $7M Navy contract for digital tutors

TeleCommunication Systems Inc. has won a $6.9 million Navy contract to design and build a prototype of an intelligent tutoring system capability.

Intelligent tutoring systems provide immediate and customized instructions and feedback to students without a human teacher, in essence digital tutors.

The prototype will be used for the Navy’s information technology rating “A” School at the Center for Information Dominance in Pensacola, Fla.

It will be integrated within the IT A-School course, helping to emphasize the troubleshooting skills required of today’s Navy IT rating, the Defense Department said.

Work will be performed in San Mateo, Calif., Pensacola, Fla., and Annapolis, Md., and is expected to be completed by September 2015.

Funding in the full amount of the contract was obligated at the time of the award, and will expire at the end of fiscal 2013.

TeleCommunication Systems was the only contractor who bid on the contract, according to the Defense Department.
