Orlando, FL – August 3, 2015 – Calytrix Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce that the U.S. Army has issued a Certificate of Networthiness for its Cost Counter software. The receipt of the Certificate of Networthiness is a significant step to show that allows the program to work on all Defense standards compliant simulation systems.
LVC Cost Counter 3.x is an application which monitors a computer network, using Distributed Interactive Simulation / High Level Architecture (DIS/HLA) standards, and accumulates and displays the individual category and total costs associated with the simulation events. This product is able to work on all Defense standards compliant simulation systems, and it enables users to accurately measure and conduct deeper analysis into the application and cost savings through the use of simulation. LVC Cost Counter logs all of the various events that occur during an exercise that would incur cost in the real world, and automatically calculates an approximate cost based on the resources consumed. LVC Cost Counter is used to create a number of different costing tables, each containing data such as, but not limited to: the cost of munitions; operational cost per hour; operational cost per km travelled; daily maintenance rates; average salary costs; and platform damage costs
The Networthiness Certification Program manages the specific risks and impacts associated with the fielding of Information Systems (ISs) and their supporting efforts. Programs require formal certification throughout the life cycle of all ISs that use the Information Technology (IT) infrastructure, and sustain the health of the Army Enterprise Infrastructure. Networthiness Certification is concerned with the identification, measurement, control, and minimization of security risks in IT systems to a level commensurate with the value of the assets protected.
Being able to show the value of simulation through LVC Cost Counter provides the user the critical data for budgeting and justification of your simulations and live training efforts.
