HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 3 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has contracted California company Cobham Analytic Solutions to design and develop a mobile infrared/ultraviolet threat simulator.

The initial development and delivery order is worth $4.7 million. But as prime system integrator for the Army's Multi-spectral Sea and Land Target Simulator, Cobham's strategic business unit could see the contract's total value grow to $56 million if all options are exercised and funded during the next five years.

"The MSALTS award is another demonstration of the program positions we can win by bringing together key technologies from different strategic business units across Cobham," said Randy Morgan, president of Cobham Analytic Solutions. "Looking forward, we see great opportunities to market Cobham's capabilities as a whole to deliver technically superior and cost-effective solutions to the warfighter."

The Army said, the MSALTS project will give the Office of the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation Center for Countermeasures and its customers a portable infrared/ultraviolet open-air missile simulator to support multiple simultaneous missile engagement tests and missile warning systems.
