Army tasks Leidos to deliver driver training simulation systems

RESTON, Va. The U.S. Department of the Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation tasked Leidos to finalize and launch 14 Common Driver Trainer (CDT) systems. Once completed, the simulation systems will be delivered to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

The systems include four instructor operator stations, as well as student training stations, after action review, and assistant driver stations. CDT simulation provides training in critical driver or crew tasks that are either time consuming, resource constrained or too dangerous to conduct on actual equipment. Officials explain that the new systems are expected to improve Fort Leonard Wood's current driver training throughput capacity.

The single-award, cost-plus-fixed-fee has a two-year base period of performance and one sixteen-month option. If all options are exercised, the contract is worth an estimated $10 million. Work will be performed at at ' Lee Vista Integration Facility in Orlando, Florida.
