The Common Army Ranges and Target Systems (CARTS) contract will support the modernization of existing training ranges by integrating new devices and target systems. These modernization efforts will be compliant with Future Army System of Integrated Targets (FASIT), the Army's program that establishes a common standard for performance, communication, and protocol associated with targets and devices used at all Army training ranges. SAIC will be eligible to compete for task orders to provide systems engineering, integrated solutions, and installation services to support the development of range instrumentation systems and infrastructures.
