 FAAC Incorporated receives USMC Operator Driving Simulator Contract Modification Valued at $4.0M to Include Additional Key Int

Ann Arbor, Michigan –– FAAC Incorporated, part of Arotech Corporation’s Training and Simulation Division, has received a contract modification valued at $4.0M.

The modification adds a dual-simulator mobile system for Marine Corp Air Station Iwakuni, Japan; three full-motion 6DOF simulators for Camp Hansen Okinawa, Japan; and 3 additional dual-simulator mobile systems for U.S. based Marine Force Reserve sites.

This modification to FAAC’s contract with the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command, Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), increases the total number of USMC ODS systems procured to 26 systems with a total of 51 simulators.

The USMC ODS originally employed in operations of M1114 Up-Armored HMMWV and MK-23 with Marine Armor System has been extended to include USMC Mine Resistance Ambush Protected fleet of vehicles: 4 x 4 Cougar Category I, 6 x 6 Cougar Category II, and 6 x 6 Buffalo Category III vehicle. "The advantage of this system is that it is a one-stop shop for commanders who can train their Marines on a range of tactical vehicles," said Capt Garrett Hager, PM TRASYS USMC ODS Project Officer, quoted in the Show Daily during the recent Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando in December 2008.
