U.S. Army managers needed a robust and realistic system for training personnel on Bradley fighting vehicles.
U.S. Army managers needed a robust and realistic system for training personnel on Bradley fighting vehicles. They found their solution in BAE Systems of Orlando, Fla.
Managers at the U.S. Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation issued BAE Systems a delivery order worth up to $12.6 million for 17 Bradley Advanced Training Systems (BATS).
“BATS training is an important part of training for soldiers going to Iraq,” Mark Russell, training systems manager for BAE Systems, explains. “BATS offers more realism and incorporates a random target feature that better prepares the soldier for real-life fighting scenarios.”
BAE Systems engineers will produce the BATS devices at the company’s Orlando facility, and install them at U.S. Army bases. Delivery is scheduled to begin December 2007 and continue through August 2008.
