MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army aims to improve and link its simulation training programs and has contracted SAIC of Virginia to help with the process.

Under a contract to support the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation, Science Applications International Corp. will provide virtual components to develop and sustain the Army's Common Virtual Environment for simulation and training programs.

The set of components, called SE Core, will enable a broad range of virtual products for combined arms and joint training and mission planning and rehearsals.

Included will be operational training terrain databases, models, simulation architecture connectivity and gaming interfaces.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base performance period and four one-year options. It value is as much as $222 million if all options are exercised.

"Our SE Core solution embodies SAIC's disciplined management approach and leading-edge technological capabilities," said John Gully, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

"We are pleased to support the Army in delivering an economical common virtual simulation environment that prepares warfighters for their upcoming challenges, with the ultimate goal of bringing them safely home."
