CSC has won a firm fixed price (FFP) contract modification by the United States Army to upgrade a simulator-based flight and related aviation training device for the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence in Ft. Rucker, Alabama, worth $34 million.
“Since the Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices reached full operational capability in 2007, the simulation technology has advanced and increased the fidelity of training,” said CSC North American Public Sector Defense Group VP and general manager, Alan B. Weakley. “These upgrades will allow the U.S. Army to conduct collective training missions, such as aviation exercises using the Block 2 configuration of the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior aircraft.”
Awarded in the second quarter of CSC’s 2013 fiscal year, the contract modification, won under the Flight School XXI indefinite-delivery requirements contract that CSC received in 2003, has a six-month base period and ten one-year options. CSC will upgrade the Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices (RCTD) to more closely simulate the Block 2 model of the OH-58D aircraft and enhance the interoperability between new and existing technologies.
Under the Flight School XXI contract, CSC will provide cost effective simulation training in realistic combat environments that supplement the live aircraft experience.
