The Air Force has hired professional services firm Gestalt LLC to supply training and simulation technologies.
As part of the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Training Toolkit program, Gestalt of Camden, N.J., won a three-year, $30 million contract to develop advanced modeling and simulation technologies to help prepare soldiers and homeland security personnel for mission critical operations.
The program supports more than 25 training exercises annually around the world. The Air Force estimates that the program suite will save up to $60 million a day by using simulations instead of live aircraft training missions, Gestalt said.
In developing the program, Gestalt will use its Pathfinder methodology which will let the Air Force re-assess the program's direction at 30-day intervals.
Gestalt's contracting team includes Raytheon Co.; Solidus Technical Solutions Inc., Leominster, Mass.; and CACI International Inc., Arlington, Va.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
