A subsidiary of By Light Professional IT Services has won a potential $192.61 million contract from the U.S. Army to develop simulation and management software for an integrated military training environment.
Cole Engineering Services Inc. will help the service branch create the Synthetic Training Environment-Information System Training Simulation Software/Training Management Tool under the firm-fixed-price contract, the Department of Defense said Monday.
Army Contracting Command received 11 bids for the STE-IS TSS/TMT project via online solicitation procedures and obligated $12.2 million at the time of award using the branch’s research, development, test and evaluation funds for fiscal year 2021.
The TSS/TMT is intended as a foundational element of STE, a multi-echelon training and mission rehearsal system designed to combine live, virtual and constructive approaches.
According to the Army, the simulation software will set the training objectives for soldiers in a common synthetic environment while the management tool will support planning and execution of instructional programs across various domains.
CESI will perform work in Orlando, Florida, and will aim to finish the project by Oct. 13, 2025.
