BAE SYSTEMS Receives Two Delivery Orders Worth $19.3 Million for Bradley Training Systems.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- BAE Systems has received two delivery orders worth up to $19.3 million from the U.S. Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation. The orders cover Conduct of Fire Trainers (COFT) and Bradley Advanced Training Systems (BATS).

BAE Systems will upgrade the Army's Bradley A2 and A2 Operation Desert Storm COFT in its Orlando, Fla. facility. The COFT contract, worth $4.9 million, calls for upgrading 66 of the trainers to add image generation capability that will allow the Army's Close Combat Tactical Trainer terrain databases to be used. The upgraded COFT configuration is designed to train or sustain gunnery proficiency so crews are accurate and effective in combat.

In a separate order worth $14.4 million, BAE Systems will develop 10 new BATS-Urban Operations and enhance 24 existing training devices. The contract provides a new image generation capability that will allow the Army's Close Combat Tactical Trainer terrain databases to be used in the BATS trainer.

"The training devices feature updated databases that accurately represent the region where soldiers will be stationed," said Mark Russell, Training Systems Manager for BAE Systems. "We sought input from the soldiers who were returning from combat to update the databases so that soldiers can learn about potential scenarios prior to their deployment."
