Riptide Software, Inc. was awarded a new prime contract by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), to provide technical solutions to support the modernization of Army training ranges worldwide.

These modernization efforts will be compliant with Future Army System of Integrated Targets (FASIT), the Army's program that establishes a common standard for performance, communication, and protocol associated with targets and devices used at all Army training ranges.
"This new contract vehicle will allow Riptide to continue to build upon our previous successes in the US Army live fire range community," said Barry Clinger, Riptide Software Chief Technical Officer. "We are pleased to be selected and look forward to continuing our existing partnership with PEO STRI and the US Army on this contract."
