Vricon to Develop Army Simulation Terrain Database Under Potential $95M OTA

Jeff Brody

Vricon has secured a potential $94.8M other transaction agreement to provide a digital terrain data collection technology for integration into the U.S. Army's Synthetic Training Environment.

The company said Friday it will develop the “One World Terrain” database to serve as a foundational component of the STE's Common Synthetic Environment, designed to allow interoperability between live training simulation systems.

Army Contracting Command received eight responses for the project via a multistage competition, according to a FedBizOpps summary.

The service branch awarded VT Systems’ VT Mak subsidiary a separate $95M OTA to build the Training Management Tool and Training Simulation Software components of the CSE platform.

The award notice stated the military service may issue a follow-on agreement for further development, scaling, baseline management and integration of STE tools to address future Department of Defense requirements.

CSE is scheduled to reach initial operational capability status in September 2021. The Army plans to deploy the system to more than 400 locations upon the attainment of full operational capability.
