AUBURN, Ala., 30 March 2006. Arotech Corporation's Simulation and Training Division has received orders valued at more than $725,000 from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command, Program Manager for Training Systems, located in Orlando, Fla. FAAC will provide the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, Calif., with a mobile, trailer-mounted Marine Corps Operator Driving Simulator.
The Marine Corps has also procured Simulated MTVR Armor System (MAS) kits to upgrade all Marine Corps Operator Driving Simulators. The upgrades enable Marine Corps simulators to replicate the challenges of MTVR operations when outfitted with full armor.
"The Simulated MAS Upgrade Kit includes both physical modifications to the cab and vehicle dynamics modeling in software," says Kurt Flosky, executive vice president of Arotech's FAAC subsidiary. "The Upgrade Kit will be developed and produced for installation on the new simulator, as well as the 42 Marine Corps simulators currently in the field, at five different locations."
FAAC is a provider of driving training simulation solutions to the U.S. Armed Forces.
