Lockheed Martin Receives U.S. Army Order For Four Additional Virtual Combat Convoy Trainers

Category: Training And Simulators

ORLANDO, FL, June 27, 2005 -- The U.S. Army has awarded Lockheed Martin a 12-month service contract valued at $4.2 million for a suite of four Virtual Combat Convoy Trainers (VCCT). The trainer is used to train troops for convoy operations in hostile environments, and will be built at Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support in Orlando.

This order follows a $5.1 million contract from the U.S. Marine Corps in January for four trainers and an initial U.S. Army order of eight trainers valued at $9.6 million in June 2004. The trainers will be delivered to the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command at Fort Lee, VA in July. To date, more than 10,500 soldiers and 300 Marines have been trained in the Lockheed Martin VCCT.

“We believe that the troops that have trained in our VCCT have gained life-saving skills prior to their respective deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Lt. Col. Joseph Giunta, Product Manager, Ground Combat Tactical Trainers, Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.

The Lockheed Martin VCCT consists of a 53-foot, self-contained, deployable commercial trailer. Using a full-scale Humvee and simulation system that replicates scenarios troops might encounter, it enables combat crews to communicate, maintain situational awareness and acquire targets while moving at highway speeds operating in a convoy environment.

The VCCT is compatible with the Army’s Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) and has already been integrated with the Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (AVCATT).

Lockheed Martin subcontracts with Firearms Training Systems, Inc. of Suwanee, GA to provide firearms simulators that make the VCCT a comprehensive training system, incorporating realistic weapons engagement training and networked vehicle simulators to reinforce crew awareness and communications.
