AROTECH TRAINING AND SIMULATION DIVISION ANNOUNCES $4.2M IN AWARDS ON ITS BOOM OPERATOR SIMULATOR SYSTEM PROGRAM
Arotech Corporation [Nasdaq GM: ARTX] announced that FAAC Incorporated, part of its Training and Simulation Division, received $4.2 million in awards on its current U.S. Air National Guard KC-135 Boom Operator Simulation System (KC-135 BOSS) contract from U.S. Army PEOSTRI. The awards, in the form of exercised options and an engineering change proposal, continue FAAC’s contractor operator/maintenance support (COMS) and Training System Support Center (TSSC) activities into FY17. COMS provides for on-site personnel and depot maintenance support for each of the 17 KC-135 BOSS units delivered under this contract. TSSC provides engineering and sustainment services/materials to the fielded systems to include bi-annual USAF simulator certification and targeted hardware modifications to enhance the KC-135 BOSS systems.
“These awards represent continued commitment from the Air National Guard to the operational readiness of the fielded KC-135 BOSS units,” said Christopher Caruana, Arotech’s Training & Simulation Division Executive Vice President. “With this sustained support, the Guard’s Air Refueling Wings can rely on the KC-135 BOSS to train refueling boom operators and will continue to realize the benefits and costs savings associated with this recently delivered training capability.”
