L-3 Communications' Link Simulation and Training Division Selected to Support the U.S. Air Force's Simulation and Analysis Facility.
Link also is a subcontractor to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, which won a contract to support other functional areas of the SIMAF. Link's work under this subcontract will initially focus on providing software development for constructive and virtual simulation task orders, and could grow to $9.2 million over five years.
"Link Simulation and Training looks forward to continuing our support of the Simulation and Analysis Facility's demonstration and assessment of emerging and modified weapon systems that can enhance our warfighters' mission effectiveness," said David Williams, vice president of Training Services at Link. "Our experienced team looks forward to supporting this important weapon systems acquisition evaluation process."
The SIMAF provides an integrated modeling, simulation and analysis capability - which includes virtual, distributed and constructive simulations - to rapidly evaluate network-enabled warfighting capabilities, current and future weapon systems, strategies, concepts of operations, tactics, emerging technologies and human system interfaces. As a result of this research, U.S. Air Force decision makers are able to increase mission effectiveness, accelerate acquisition, mitigate risk and reduce total operating costs of future weapon systems.
