ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 25 (UPI) -- A performance enhancement and training program for elite U.S. forces is to be developed by the White Canvas Group, a technology solutions company.

The work will be performed under a contract with the Defense Department's Combating Terrorism Technology Support Office. The monetary value of the award and its period of performance, however, were not disclosed.

White Canvas said that it will integrate its xCEL system into the solution for the military, which is a performance enhancement method used to train athletes. Its platform can be easily integrated into existing training and will help enable troops to "see clearer, perceive quicker, and react faster."

"Our elite military needs and deserves access to the same caliber technology available to professional athletes," said Jon Iadonisi, White Canvas Group founder and a former Navy SEAL.

"Our system provides just that. We're excited to implement the xCEL system, and provide war fighters with another tool to ensure their skills remain elite."
