In an $8.9 million contract, A-T Solutions Inc. will supply the U.S. Navy with its Mobile Counter Improvised Explosive Device Trainers.
The training program uses terrain maps and real video to simulate how soldiers might encounter IEDs in the field. The training program can be updated quickly to account for new enemy tactics or information.
A-T Solutions developed prototypes of the software over the past two years in partnership with the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies.
“We are pleased to be delivering our first MCIT training program to the U.S. Navy,” said Dennis Kelly, chief executive officer of A-T Solutions. “This is an exciting program because through its deployment we have the chance to save lives by increasing the number of our warfighters who will be better prepared to detect and defeat IEDs during operational deployments.”
“This is key to helping our warfighters adapt to an ever-changing threat,” Kelly added. “We believe this technology solution is highly adaptable to support similar training needs in other federal agencies as well as in the state and local municipal markets we serve.”
