$20.5M to Aegis for AFMSTT Air Warfare Simulation System SupportApr 28, 2010 12:30 UTC by Defense Industry Daily staff
Aegis Technologies in Huntsville, AL received a $20.5 million contract to support the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Training Toolkit (AFMSTT).
AFMSTT is a collection of computer-based simulation systems and mission controller workstations used to train senior US military commanders and staff for joint air warfare.
AFMSTT supports a range of live US military exercises, including Flexible Leader, Terminal Fury, Unified Endeavor, Austere Challenge, Joint Expeditionary Forces Experiments, and Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration…
The AFMSTT components include:
- Air Warfare Simulation (AWSIM): theater-level wargaming model that provides an interactive, free-play, computer driven, time-stepped simulaton.
- Air and Space Constructive Environment – Command and Control Simulation Interface (ACE-CSI): an interface between the live military exercise and the simulated exercise.
- Graphical Input Aggregate Control (GIAC): a graphical user interface that interacts with the simulation using a web browser.
- Air Force Logistics Simulation (LOGSIM): a model that simulates processes of flight-line maintenance and places constraints on availability of combat aircraft during wargame simulation.
According to an Aegis release, the contract has a potential value of $74 million. At this time, $1.5 million of the contact has been obligated. The 753 ESG at Hanscom Air Force Base, MA manages the contract (FA8731-10-C-0003).
