CSC Wins $27M Navy Training Order

Thursday, October 02, 2003
Computer Sciences Corporation has received a task order from the Navy Program Executive Officer for Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS) to develop shiphandling simulators and provide enhanced instructional support. The task order, which has one base year and four one-year options, has an estimated value to CSC exceeding $27 million if all options are exercised. Under the new award, CSC will provide both shore- and sea-based trainers to help naval officers improve their mariner skills under the Navy's Navigation, Seamanship and Shiphandling (NSS) program. CSC's Shiphandling Simulator software has been used to provide land-based training to the U.S. Navy for more than 15 years. The software was recently chosen for the Division Officers Shiphandling Laboratory at the Surface Warfare Officers School Command in Newport, R.I. "CSC is proud to apply its experience in continued support of shiphandling training both afloat and ashore," said Aaron Fuller, vice president and general manager of CSC's Navy/Marine Corps and Missile Defense organization. "We look forward to working closely with the Navy to accomplish superior results in training today's naval officers." PEO IWS is the lead agency within the Navy to field systems that support the Navy's Total Ship Training Vision, a comprehensive training program of which NSS is a part. The crew training portion of NSS incorporates a comprehensive training system designed to improve the capability of crews to expertly navigate and operate their ships on the high seas. The NSS system requires that sailors demonstrate mastery of the skills that qualify them to assume charge of assigned watches aboard ship.
