  • Can compete for $980 million in training delivery system programs issued via the contract vehicle

    The DiSTI Corporation, the world’s leading provider of 3D virtual training solutions and graphical user interface software, has been awarded a contract N61340-18-D-5007 for the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division’s (NAWCTSD) Training Systems Contract IV (TSC IV) Multiple Award Contract (MAC). The TSC IV MAC, inclusive of all awarded contracts and ordering periods, has a not-to-exceed value of $980,000,000. All delivery orders will be placed pursuant to the procedures at FAR 16.5.

    DiSTI was one of 10 small business award winners among the 23 award recipients – significant as it allows these companies to compete on a level playing field among the largest industry defense contractors for services on the contract to provide training device and training systems design, development, production, test and evaluation, delivery, modification and support. TSC IV’s evaluation included vendor delivery capabilities for virtual and augmented reality technology, opening the door for more SMB contractors that have been driving innovation and leadership in this area.

    “Being included on the award validates DiSTI’s well-rounded capabilities to deliver high quality training programs to the U.S. Navy. I believe we stood out in two ways. First, DiSTI has superior technology in the area of virtual maintenance training; and secondly, our past performance on other government contracts proves we are capable of succeeding. Those two elements combined are really what the Navy was looking for,” said Joe Swinski, President of DiSTI.

    DiSTI’s VP of Services, Steve Jackson adds, “Over the past 15 years, DiSTI has consistently delivered operator and maintainer training solutions to the U.S. military and commercial customers. We have the expertise, processes and technology leadership with developmental tools like VE Studio and GL Studio to deliver cutting-edge training solutions, quickly and economically.”

    TSC IV’s objective is to establish a long-term competitively awarded contract vehicle to support NAWC TSD’s acquisition of training system devices, complementary ISD products and Training Systems Support. Contract deliverables include development and production of new training systems, modification of existing training systems, and purchasing additional quantities of existing training systems. The pre-selection of award recipients identifies contractors that have demonstrated capability to meet Fleet requirements by: shortening training program development and delivery times, delivering high-quality programs to the field, maintain a responsive customer support team, and deliver at reasonable prices.

  • DiSTI successfully delivers Counter – Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM), Land-Based Phalanx Weapon System (LPWS) Operator/Maintainer Trainer (OMT) powered by VE Studio, the leading Virtual Maintenance Training (VMT) development platform.

    Orlando, FL (September 26, 2018) – The DiSTI Corporation announces their successful completion of their $2.8M contract award from the U.S. Army’s PEO STRI for the development of the C-RAM LPWS OMT developed on the VE Studio platform.

    C-RAM was developed to protect ground forces and forward operating bases from the threat of rockets, artillery and mortars. Live operational training with the C-RAM LPWS system can be dangerous and expensive with the various physical aspects involved like missile engagement, extreme weather conditions, ammunition cost, and safety restrictions.

    The C-RAM virtual training solution enables air defense artillery teams to practice procedures for operating and maintaining one of the Army’s most complex weapons systems in a safe and controlled environment; including clearing ammo feed jams – a task difficult to repeatedly replicate during live training.

    Student safety and lowering the cost of training were key considerations for the development of the training solution. The OMT assists students with training on the C-RAM LPWS by simulating scenarios in a virtual environment that includes over 105 operator and maintainer procedures and instructional modes that support free play, tutorial, practice and assessment. The OMT’s Instructor Operator Station (IOS) provides instructors within the classroom the ability to remotely demonstrate procedures, assign lessons to students, and evaluate student performance.

    A key feature is animation of C-RAM’s gun belt feed system in action while the weapons is firing and the simulation of seven different feed jams soldiers could encounter in the field. The OMT provides operators and maintainers with an in-depth view of the inner workings of the weapons system with see-through views – unlike anything they would be able to replicate with physical training without risking the soldier’s safety.

    The C-RAM LPWS OMT program used the latest release of DiSTI’s commercially available VE Studio development platform that provides a proven, patented process to efficiently create interactive 3D content rendered using the Unity game engine. Unlike using Unity by itself, VE Studio offers a database-centric production pipeline to efficiently manage 3D virtual environment development; reducing program development cost and risk while enabling the Army to issue future procedural updates, system variants or integrate AR/VR capabilities at a considerable reduction in production cost.

    “This is by far, one of the most complex examples of how a state-of-the-art OMT solution can deliver an immersive, life-like simulation capable of training students on very complex and dangerous procedures that they could not easily perform in the real-world. It will pay dividends in maintenance and operational practice when lives are on the line in the field,” says Steve Jackson, VP of Business Development of the DiSTI Corporation.

    The U.S. Army estimates 2,000 students per year will pass through the five electronic classrooms. Thirty-nine Unit configurations consisting of ruggedized laptops will also be distributed to actively deployed units – offering remote training and variant upgrade modules in the field for the life of the program.
