By Light Professional IT Services subsidiary Cole Engineering Services Inc. has won a potential $192.61 million contract from the U.S. Army to develop simulation and management software for an integrated military training environment.
As reported on GovConWire.com, CESI will help the service branch create the Synthetic Training Environment-Information System Training Simulation Software/Training Management Tool under a firm-fixed-price contract.
The TSS/TMT is meant as a foundational element of STE, a multi-echelon training and mission rehearsal system designed to combine live, virtual and constructive approaches. CESI plans to perform work in Orlando, Florida, and aims to complete the project by October 2025.
Army Contracting Command received 11 bids for the project and obligated $12.2 million using the branch’s research, development, test and evaluation funds for fiscal year 2021.
The simulation software is intended to set the training objectives for soldiers in a common synthetic environment. The management tool meanwhile aims to support planning and execution of instructional programs across various domains.
