: 14 November, 2007  (Company News)
AAI awarded a $2.3m contract for IED training for US Army
AAI Corporation has been awarded a $2.3 million contract from the U.S. Army to assist in training the joint and individual services on operational support tasks, conditions, and standards needed to achieve U.S. military objectives to defeat improvised explosive devices (IED).

The contract, awarded by the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation in Orlando, Fla., calls for an initial quantity of 305 IED Training Systems to be delivered to various installations worldwide.

Known as fire marker units, the training systems are designed to replicate the visual signature, sound, and trigger activation of IEDs used against U.S. and allied troops. They will be produced in partnership with RUAG COEL GmbH, the German subsidiary of RUAG Electronics, Simulation and Training Division, Switzerland, considered one of the world’s leading experts in electro-optical and laser-based technologies.

AAI will train soldiers on the use of the training systems and provide program management, system and engineering support, and maintenance. RUAG will produce the training systems.

“We are pleased to provide the U.S. Army with a more realistic IED training experience,” stated Robert Peters, vice president of AAI’s Training Systems. “Improving the live training environment will better prepare our soldiers for real-world operations.”

The U.S. Army IED training simulators are derived from similar devices in use with U. S. Army training ranges in Germany, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the Swiss army.

For more than 30 years, AAI has been a recognized leader in delivering critical skills training to warfighters, combat system operators, and maintainers in U.S. and allied armed forces.

United Industrial Corporation designs, produces, and supports aerospace and defense systems through its wholly owned subsidiary, AAI Corporation, and AAI Corporation’s direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, AAI Services Corporation, Aerosonde Pty Ltd, Aerosonde North America Incorporated, ESL Defence Limited, McTurbine Inc., and Symtx, Inc. Its high-technology products and services include unmanned aircraft systems, training and simulation systems, automated aerospace test and maintenance equipment, armament systems, aviation ground support equipment, logistical and
