Driver Training Simulation Systems Contract

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS ) has won a prime contract from the U.S. Department of the Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation to finalize and launch 14 Common Driver Trainer (CDT) systems. The single-award, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a two-year base period of performance and one sixteen-month option. If all options are exercised, the contract is worth more than $10 million .

The simulators include student training stations, after action review and assistant driver stations. In addition, there are four instructor operator stations. The CDT systems will be completed at Leidos' state-of-the-art 42,000 square-foot Lee Vista Integration Facility in Orlando , Florida.  After completion, the systems will be delivered to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri .

CDT simulation provides training in critical driver or crew tasks that are either time consuming, resource constrained or too dangerous to conduct on actual equipment. However, with the use of a CDT simulator, tasks can be easily repeated for enhanced training. The new systems are expected to improve Fort Leonard Wood's current driver training throughput capacity.

"The development and implementation of these simulations are vital to the initial training and ultimate success of tactical vehicle operators and crews," said John Fratamico , president of the Leidos Advanced Solutions Group. "As the original developer of the Common Driver Trainer product line, Leidos understands the value of these simulators, and our team looks forward to fielding these new systems at Fort Leonard Hood in further support of the PEO STRI's mission to achieve Army readiness."
