The US Department of Defense has awarded a contract to Veraxx Engineering to provide technical support for the aviation distributed virtual training environment (ADVTE) system.

Veraxx will provide technical upgrades and improvements, as well as sustain the system used by the US Marine Corps (USMC).

The contract, valued at around $46m, was competitively awarded through an ‘unrestricted competition’.

The ADVTE system is a ‘persistent, closed-loop, network-customised’ training solution. It is an extension of Veraxx’s Tactical Environment network.

It allows geographically dispersed training systems to take part in a virtual training event, as well as networked, multi-site training across several ground-based training systems.

The ADVTE equipment comprises network exercise control centres, common virtual training areas, and other associated aviation training equipment.

Veraxx CEO Chris Conrad said: “Veraxx has provided technical support for US Marine Corps’ networked and integrated training for more than 20 years.

“We are proud to have earned this opportunity to continue enhancing and evolving ADVTE and will continue to work closely and collaboratively with the marines and our acquisition community teammates in doing so.”

The USMC successfully tested the ADVTE system in September 2011. During this test, marines assessed the system’s capabilities in providing interoperability between simulators and two air stations.
