US Army Flight Simulation Training Support


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation)
: 09 August, 2010  (Application Story)
CSC will provide support for the simulation based aviation training facility for the US Army at Fort Rucker
CSC has been awarded a $28 million modification to its Flight School XXI contract for an increase in simulator-based flight and related aviation training support to the US Army Aviation Center of Excellence at Ft. Rucker, Ala. CSC won the original contract, which has a six month base period and 19 one-year options in 2003. CSC received the modification during the company’s fiscal 2010 fourth quarter that ended April 2, 2010.

The Flight School XXI contract modification is issued through the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). Under the terms of the contract modification, CSC will provide training services for new Army aircraft configurations to support aviation training activities. This increase in simulators and services will allow 25 percent more students to take the Initial Entry Rotary Wing course, where officers learn the skills to become an Army Aviator.

“We are proud to expand our role in support of the US Army’s charge to prepare highly trained, combat-ready pilots,” said Randy Cash, vice president and general manager of CSC’s North American Public Sector Huntsville Alabama Operations. “CSC brings together the best equipment available from industry and the knowledge of top training experts in military and commercial aviation to enhance readiness and improve proficiency.”

Under the Flight School XXI contract, CSC provides cost-effective simulation training in realistic combat environments that supplement the live aircraft experience. The CSC-led team built a 136,000-square-foot facility to house 34 high-fidelity flight simulators, and provided 18 reconfigurable devices for unit training. Students experience combat conditions in realistic environments on terrain that they will see in the future while learning to fly and fight.
