Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a recognized leader in federal IT solutions, will roll out the revolutionary new Dismounted Soldier Training System (DSTS) to 28 U.S. Army installations worldwide over the next six months, according to a company announcement made today. The cutting-edge system enables U.S. soldiers, leaders and units to train in a virtual environment, increases the quality of instruction and combat preparedness, and reduces traditional expenses associated with large-scale training facilities. ID spearheaded the development, and now the production, of the multi-million dollar DSTS. The company will also provide ongoing, onsite operations and maintenance of the system at all the Army installations. Management of the training system is being led by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.
Demonstrated to U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno this spring, DSTS has the capability to train soldiers and units in all five operational themes – major combat operations, irregular warfare, peace operations, limited intervention and peacetime military engagement – as well as the four elements of Unified Land Operations – offense, defense, stability and civil support.
“The Dismounted Soldier Training System is transforming the way soldiers train – creating a more realistic environment, increasing combat readiness, and significantly reducing the traditional expenses associated with large-scale training facilities,” said ID President and CEO Harry Martin. “Intelligent Decisions is proud to have reached this huge milestone, providing our deploying soldiers with the best available training, and, ultimately, helping ensure they maintain the military advantage.”
The Dismounted Soldier Training System delivers:
The DSTS system successfully completed U.S. Army User Assessment Testing at Fort Benning, GA, prior to receiving authorization to move forward with production. The system was evaluated by the U.S. Army’s Maneuver Center of Excellence for its training capability. Passing this key milestone led to the U.S. Army and ID officially kicking off the DSTS roll out at Fort Bragg, NC, on July 26. Specifically, two squads from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division at the base participated in a two-hour training exercise.
ID’s Simulation and Training Division is located in Orlando, FL, and houses the management and development team for the Dismounted Soldier Training System.
