ATLANTA - Nov 9, 2005 - FATS, Inc. announced today that it has received a $1.1 million order from Lockheed Martin to provide simulation training systems for the Virtual Combat Convoy Trainer (VCCT). The U.S. Army Combined Arms Command (CASCOM) ordered one complete VCCT suite from Lockheed Martin for delivery in November 2005.
In 2004, Lockheed Martin and FATS combined their expertise to develop the VCCT for the U.S. Army. The two companies utilized Lockheed Martin's Close Combat Tactical Trainer and FATS virtual small arms trainers, indirect fire trainers and close air support to form the first simulated convoy training system.
"As current events and training needs evolve, it is important that FATS continues to offer industry partners and customers alike the most up-to-date and advanced virtual training solutions and service support available," said Ron Mohling, FATS, Inc. chief executive officer. "This new contract is another great example of a successful, collaborative effort to meet the military's needs."
