CATI awarded contract from URS to deliver Predator GCS Training Device

Daleville, Alabama – October 4, 2011


CATI Training Systems announced today that URS Corporation has awarded its Daleville Operation a contract to provide maintenance support for its CATI-designed and produced sustainment training device comprised of primarily commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware loaded with CATI′s proprietary software to emulate the Warrior A UAS (AO and PO). The system is for use by the US Army′s 21st Cavalry Brigade located at Fort Hood, Texas. This system is intended to support, familiarization and continuation training. The training device facilitates basic to complex scenarios and provides the capability to alter scenes during training sessions to maximize experience and retention. With its open architecture software design, it will support future rapid, low cost changes and upgrades. The Warrior A simulation training device replicates a full Ground Control Station (GCS) with two complete and accurate crew station configurations (AO and PO), an instructor operation station. The system employs high fidelity image generation to provide realism and to support scenario development.
