General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) recently awarded Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) a contract for an Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) to support the U.S. Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM-TRASYS). ASTi will provide a subscription-based bundle of product licensing and ongoing services supporting the PM TRASYS Live Virtual Constructive Training Environment (LVC-TE, a.k.a. Project Tripoli) program. Project Tripoli is a top-priority USMC modernization initiative that will create an integrated live and synthetic all-domain combat training environment integrated across the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.
GDMS selected ASTi's enterprise solution because it met Project Tripoli's unique set of requirements for enhanced features and technical performance, interoperability, scalability and extensibility at a reduced total cost of ownership. ASTi's Voisus® communications product will provide the Marines with a common, networked voice solution, replacing multiple commercial and government off-the-shelf (GOTS) systems that hampered critical training due to obsolescence and sustainment issues.
Under this contract, ASTi will integrate Voisus into the Marines' LVC-TE system of systems to provide a virtualized, cloud-ready voice communications infrastructure. Voisus will link live-combat aircraft, ground forces, Naval ships, simulators, VBS4™ tactical gaming suites and computer-based staff.
The ELA also includes a comprehensive service package that includes:
- Software and Information Assurance (IA) maintenance
- Onsite fielding and training
- Help desk services
- Engineering services
- Discounted hardware catalog
ASTi will field Voisus capabilities at initial Project Tripoli sites, including:
- System Integration Lab (SIL), Orlando, FL
- PM TRASYS Integration & Innovation Lab (PIIL), Orlando, FL
- Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC), MCB Twentynine Palms, CA
