FAAC, a subsidiary of Arotech, recently announced that the company has been awarded a $6.1 million contract to supply the Army National Guard with Military Operator Driving Simulators (ODS). Under the terms of the contract, FAAC will supply eight trailer systems to the National Guard.
Arotech is focused on developing and manufacturing simulation-based training systems as well as multimedia and interactive digital solutions for use in engineering, use-of-force, and driver training simulations for military, law enforcement, security, municipal, and private industry personnel.
The National Guard locations receiving the simulators are Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, South Dakota, and Nevada. Each trailer will include two driving simulators capable of training operators of the M915, M939, FMTV, HEMTT, PLS, HET, M1114 HMMWV, MRAP Cougar and MRAP-All Terrain (M-ATV) vehicles. The first to be delivered will be in Reno, in time to be displayed as part of the 134th National Guard Association of the United States General Conference & Exhibition, to be held September 9-12. The systems will be used to train student operators for both on and off-road conditions, in a variety of geographical regions.
Todd Glenn, FAAC Director of Military Business Development, said, "We are pleased to be in position to continue to support the readiness and preparation of the Army National Guard. The Operator Driving Simulator provides an immersive, realistic, experience allowing Guard operators to learn skills necessary to operate the vehicles and prepare for conditions expected at widely varying deployment locations. Through use of the ODS, the National Guard can maintain operator proficiency, ensure training standards, and remain prepared to serve their essential role in our Nation's defense.”
