Lockheed Martin has won $288 million contract to modernize U.S. Army’s live training program.
As the prime contractor, Lockheed Martin will partner with Saab to provide a simplified training solution that combines multiple vehicle crew training systems into a single product line.
Managed by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), the system includes training kits of laser detectors and transmitters to equip military trucks, training weapons, and armored vehicles. The new Instrumentable Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (I-MILES) Vehicle Tactical Engagement Simulation System (VTESS) program will allow seamless integration with the Army's existing Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems, the company said in a statement Monday.
"Through I-MILES VTESS, we are changing the way vehicle crews take part in training exercises with an open architecture system that is robust and simple to use," said Sandy Samuel, Lockheed Martin Vice President, Training and Simulation Solutions. "Together, these systems enable soldiers to conduct live, highly realistic force-on-force training with their existing platforms and weapons systems."
Leveraging Lockheed Martin's SciosLive baseline, I-MILES VTESS components were designed to make the system easier for individual soldiers to manage and operate in the field. Compared to the current MILES Tactical Vehicle System, the Lockheed Martin system is smaller, lighter and features simplified components.
Polish Armament Group (PGZ) has selected Lockheed Martin for further talks on using the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) for Poland's Homer program. The highly mobile platform delivers accurate, lethal, quick-strike munitions ranging from 15 to 300 kilometers, the company announced Friday
