U.S. Awards Military Simulator Contract to Raydon

Raydon was awarded a contract worth over $45 million if all options are exercised to provide military vehicle simulation and training for the U.S. military. The Orlando Sentinel writes that the contract is a major coup for the smaller Raydon when compared to its competitors in the Orlando area like Lockheed Martin. While only 300 persons strong the company has demonstrated an ability to build and operate military vehicle simulators, and especially military convoy simulators used to train troops going to Iraq and Afghanistan. The main threat over the last few years to U.S. troops has been IED and attacks on vehicle convoys so the U.S. has invested heavily in training troops to counter these types of attacks. Simulators are only part of the solution as the U.S. has built whole networks of simulated Iraqi terrain at the U.S. training ranges.

DoD to Restructure TSAT Program

The U.S. Department of Defense plans to end the current Transformational Satellite Communications (TSAT) program and restructure a more simplified program with a less aggressive schedule. Forbes reports that the current program will stop and a new requirement be developed. Lockheed and Boeing were planning on bidding on the original requirement, and will surely bid on the new one. The TSAT may be delayed up to four years and have reduced capabilities. This will hopefully reduce the cost of the program. More to come on this in the next year.
