MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 12 (UPI) -- SAIC has received a prime contract and follow-on task order from the U.S. Army for additional simulation training systems for CH-47 and UH-60 helicopters.

Work under the contract involves delivery of 11 integrated crew member simulators, integration and testing of the systems.

The overall award was given by the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation under the Non-rated Crew Member Manned Module program. The task order portion is for 37 months.

The deal is worth $41 million.

"We're excited by the opportunity to continue providing this proven technology to the U.S. Army, which enables non-rated crew members to train on critical, coordinated tasks like gunnery, sling load and hoist operations with pilots," said John Gully, senior vice president and business unit general manager of Science Applications International Corp.

"This task order allows us to deliver the second generation of crew-member training capability and enables us to help PEO STRI ensure that America's warfighters receive the best training possible."

The NCM3 is a transportable, multi-station, virtual simulation device to support individual, crew and collective training and integrates with the Army's Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer simulators.
