StraCon Wins Contract to Develop Innovative Digital Training for the U.S. Army

StraCon was awarded two contracts funded at $4.6 million to develop innovative virtual training and education (T&E) products for the U.S. Army Quartermaster School.  Under the Army Virtual Learning Environment (AVLE) program, the Army selected StraCon to design, develop and deliver advanced digital training and elearning products for the Petroleum and Water Department’s MOS 92W Water Treatment Specialist and MOS 92L Petroleum Laboratory Specialist advanced individual training (AIT) for Soldiers at Fort Lee, VA.

The training products that StraCon will deliver include interactive multimedia instruction (IMI) hosted on the Blackboard LMS and instructional videos both live action and 3D animations. StraCon is also providing digital training enablers (DTEs) for the Quartermaster School which are virtual interactive replicas of the equipment that MOS 92W and 92L Soldiers will use while conducting logistical support during operations.

The DTEs use 3D modeling and simulation (M&S) and gaming development tools to create immersive, scenario-based training for Soldiers to support initial knowledge and skills before moving on to training on the actual equipment or systems. Training with the virtual DTE simulators in a Serious-Game setting provides a bridge between traditional classroom instruction and live training that provides savings in both time spent training and total cost.

StraCon is excited to be partnered with LSI, Inc., Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BiSIM), and Will Interactive as part of the U.S. Army’s TRADOC AVLE program. Upcoming AVLE projects will incorporate Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to produce distributed learning products that provide realistic, accurate and effective training resulting in improved Warfighter performance and operational readiness.
