  • 15-Oct-2010 11:43 EDT

The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation has awarded Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) a new prime contract to provide technical solutions to support the modernization of Army training ranges worldwide. The multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total ceiling value of $400 million for all awardees if all options are exercised. 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.
