Jeff Brody

Kratos Defense and Security Solutions (Nasdaq: KTOS) has secured a multimillion dollar contract to build a virtual simulation environment for the U.S. Army's Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.

The company said Wednesday it will provide a virtual prototyping holodeck for Army personnel to simulate  equipment and battle environments.

VPH is intended to help address NVESD's virtual training, assessment and research and development requirements, Kratos added.

NVESD uses cross reality or XR tools in efforts to understand how warfighters react to a sensor technology.

“Utilizing our immersive simulation platform and XR technologies, Kratos has developed simulation environments that can be deployed at the point of need, be that in holodecks, simulators or even real air and ground platforms," said Jose Diaz, senior vice president at Kratos' traning solutions unit.
