The Army’s Synthetic Training Environment cross-functional team is holding an industry day next month for the Soldier/Squad Virtual Trainer. 

The industry day will be held in Monti Hall at Ft. Sill, OK, on Oct. 29, to provide details of the S/SVT requirements and demonstrations of current legacy capabilities. One-on-one vendor engagements will follow on Oct. 30. 

According to an announcement posted on the National Security Technology Accelerator website, the Army is looking for an S/SVT prototype that will give units the ability to demonstrate use of force, weapons skill development and joint fires training at the point of need. The Training Management Tool, Training Simulation Software and One World Terrain will enable the S/SVT to support soldier skill acquisition. 

The service will award an other transaction agreement for the S/SVT and will release a draft statement of need by the end of this month. The Army is seeking industry feedback by October and a request for solutions is anticipated to be released next January.
