Leidos Wins $10 million for Common Driver Trainers

14 Systems to be Delivered

On 8 November Leidos announced the award of a prime contract from the US Army PEO-STRI for 14 Common Driver Trainer (CDT) systems. The cost-plus-fixed-fee single-award contract has a base performance period of two years, with a 16-month option. If the options are exercised, contract value is over US$10 million.

 

The simulators, to be delivered to Ft. Leonard Wood, MO, include student training stations, assistant driver and after action review stations and four instructor operator stations. They are expected to materially improve current driver training throughput capacity.

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. However, with the use of a CDT simulator, tasks can be easily repeated for enhanced training. The new systems are expected to improve Fort Leonard Wood’s current driver training throughput capacity.

The development and implementation of these simulations are vital to the initial training and ultimate success of tactical vehicle operators and crews,” said John Fratamico, president of the Leidos Advanced Solutions Group. “As the original developer of the Common Driver Trainer product line, Leidos understands the value of these simulators, and our team looks forward to fielding these new systems at Fort Leonard Hood in further support of the PEO STRI’s mission to achieve Army readiness.
