Ashburn,VA (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a recognized leader in federal IT solutions, will showcase the company’s revolutionary new Dismounted Soldier Training System (DSTS) at the Modern Day Marine Exposition from September 25 to 27 at the Marine Corps Base (MCB) Quantico in Virginia. 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 is currently rolling out DSTS to 28 U.S. Army installations worldwide.
DSTS enables many different scenarios and environments to be built. So the training system allows for complete cross pollination based on the branch of service, type of mission, and operating environment – further decreasing cost, development time, and expensive training environments.
“Modern Day Marine is known throughout the industry and armed forces as one of the premier military equipment, systems, services and technology expositions,” said ID President and CEO Harry Martin. “For that reason, the event will provide us with an ideal opportunity to get feedback from warfighters on the Dismounted Soldier Training System, as well as to respond to their questions face-to-face.”
A significant amount of the equipment used by the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and other U.S. and allied forces confronting enemies in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world was first showcased at a Modern Day Marine Exposition. MCB Quantico VA, known as the “Crossroads of the Marine Corps,” is home to the Combat Development Command and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), which serves as the Department of the Navy's systems command for Marine Corps ground weapon and information technology system programs in order to equip and sustain the USMC forces with full-spectrum, current and future expeditionary and crisis response capabilities.
MCSC conducts research, development and acquisition for the Marine Corps. In its role as an acquisition organization and a competency support organization, MCSC manages or supports over 35 defense acquisition programs.
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 DSTS at all of the 28 U.S. Army installations. Management of DSTS is being led by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.
It is important to note that earlier this year the MCSC awarded ID a key Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) multi-award contract for the delivery of commercial-off-the-shelf computer systems to the Marine Corps as part of the Marine Corps Common Hardware Suite (MCHS). Specifically, the IDIQ contract is designed to deliver standardized computing equipment and worldwide integrated logistics support to the USMC and the Department of Navy for next generation enterprise network laptops and desktops. ID will feature some of the critical systems that are available on this contract at the Modern Day Marine Exposition.
