Amentum to Help Build Sensor-Based Training System for Army; Paul Cummings Quoted

An Amentum-led industry team will create a synthetic training environment prototype for the U.S. Army under an other transaction agreement from the service branch’s program executive office for simulation, training and instrumentation.

Amentum said Tuesday it teamed up with FN America, Cole Engineering Systems, Cornet Technologies and SoarTech for the STE Live Training System development effort.

The team aims to integrate embedded optics and computer vision software into sensor-based technology capable of operating with a weapon system and collecting shooter performance data from a force-on-force live training platform that factors in physical effects occlusion.

Paul Cummings, vice president of transformational training at Amentum, said the OTA award presents the company an opportunity to develop technologies intended to address warfighter training requirements.
