  • 06-May-2010 04:10 EDT

The U.S. Air Force awarded AEgis Technologies Group Inc. a three-year contract estimated to be worth $74 million for the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Training Toolkit (AFMSTT). AFMSTT is a noncommercial, government-owned simulation system used to train the Joint Force Command, Joint Force Air Component Commander, and their battle staff in multiple federation environments. It supports military organizations by providing the air war simulation for senior commanders and battle staffs for training in the execution of joint and combined operations. The toolkit consists of a group of software applications designed to provide a range of operational environments for mission training. AEgis Technologies will serve as the prime contractor, and Accenture will serve as the primary subcontractor.
