"DiSTI is eager to work with J.F. Taylor and other FMT hardware-based Hands-on-Trainer and Part-Task-Trainer (PTT) suppliers to take full advantage of the FMT Product Line architecture and Common Core Software," said DiSTI CEO John Hayward. "This program will provide a common training experience across U.S. Army vehicles and reduce development and lifecycle costs."
"J.F. Taylor, Inc. is excited to join forces with DiSTI to provide the best maintenance training product to the Army," said J.F. Taylor President Wayne Taylor. "By combining the proven ground vehicle maintenance experiences' of J.F. Taylor's hardware solutions with DiSTI's virtual solutions, the PTT will bring a new high standard of training devices to the Training Aids, Devices, and Simulators (TADSS) community."
This award is the first contract for The DISTI Corporation under the U.S. Army's Family of Maintenance Trainers Product Line initiative to apply the FMT architecture and common core software to an FMT hardware-based trainer.
Installation of classrooms featuring the AMPV DTT trainers will occur in multiple U.S. Army training locations.
DiSTI will integrate a range of Common Core and AMPV-specific software elements, including the AMPV Lessons, Lesson Tracker, AMPV Simulation, Message Manager Interface, Instructor/Operator Station (IOS), and Training Management System (TMS).
The Family of Maintenance Trainers (FMT) is a program developed by the U.S. Army to establish a Common Core (CC) software baseline to replace its current software architecture with a solution adaptable to address new and emerging technologies for future training needs.
