Included within this scope is complementary Instructional Systems Development products and complementary training systems support, which includes interim contractor support or contractor engineering & technical services and provisioning for the initial support period.
Miles Adcock, Managing Director of QinetiQ’s Training and Simulation Services business said;
“We are particularly pleased to announce that QinetiQ have been chosen amongst a group of highly select companies to supply the US Department for Defense key training modules within the IDIQ contract.
“QinetiQ have been working very closely over a number of years with the UK Ministry of Defence who have led the way in providing ‘thought leadership’ in developing cutting edge training and simulation expertise. Utilising the huge amount of development and investment within the gaming industry and adapting and transferring those skills into battlefield simulations, our close partnership has reaped untold dividends in ensuring our Distributed Simulated Air Land Training (DSALT) system is now viewed globally as leading the way. We can therefore say unequivocally that we will bring a depth and range of technical expertise which is second to none and, we look forward to delivering high quality services to the Naval Air Warfare Center’s Training System Division.”
