SERIOUS SIMULATIONS WINS TRACKING SUBCONTRACT FOR THE U.S. ARMY’S VIRTUAL CLEARANCE TRAINING SYSTEM
ORLANDO, Florida, USA – Serious Simulations LLC announced today that it has begun work for FAAC Incorporated, the prime contractor for the U.S. Army’s Virtual Clearance Training System (VCTS). The subcontract was awarded as part of an overall upgrade package to the Army’s VCTS program being executed by FAAC. The VCTS program is administered by the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEOSTRI).
Serious Simulations will provide a unique gun tracking solution to the fleet of simulators in the VCTS program. Specifically, the company developed a Zero Drift Machine Gun tracking system to enable machine gunnery tasks to be executed with extremely high degrees of accuracy and zero drift (drift is an issue whereby the virtual machine gun begins to move itself, or “drift”, virtually, without any physical movement or stimulus, necessitating recalibrations during training. The drift issue is not uncommon in simulators, and is propagated by a variety of sensor technologies and environmental conditions).
