CFD - New Contracts

March 2009
The Central Florida Division of ARA has won a multi-million dollar, multi-year contract with RDECOM for development of the SHared Architecture for Dynamic Environment (SHADE). SHADE will provide extensible, reusable dynamic environment capabilities to the US Army modeling and simulation community. SHADE supplies all of the necessary components to receive event information, compute an effect, and convey the effect to participating applications in a correlated, repeatable fashion. Development will not target a single program; instead it will solicit requirements from across the Live, Virtual, and Constructive domains to provide a solution suitable for any program. For more information, contact Chuck Campbell at 407-823-9121.

ARA is among the companies awarded the Simulation and Training Omnibus Contract (STOC II) by the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). STOC II serves as a contracting vehicle to quickly get simulation and training products and services into the hands of U.S. and coalition service members.

“This contract allows us to continue to provide innovative solutions in modeling, simulation, training, and analysis to our nation’s warfighters,” said Matt Kraus, Manager of ARA’s Central Florida Division. “We look forward to our continued support of PEO STRI and to further advancing the Army’s technological capabilities.”

Deep Green
July 2008
The Central Florida Division of ARA has been chosen to lead the test and evaluation efforts on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA's) new multi-million dollar project, Deep Green. Deep Green is a battle command decision support system, which is intended to help military commanders avoid "black swans" in their plans through enhancing option generation and decision-making processes. For more information, contact Doug Reece at 407-823-9121.

Real-time Physics Effects Library
June 2008
The Central Florida Division of ARA has won a contract with RDECOM STTC for development of our Real-time Physics Effects Library (RPEL). RPEL integrates efforts from multiple ARA divisions to provide a real-time weapons effects simulation capability. The system uses validated models to assess vehicle and building damage and it will soon be able to model human casualty assessment. In addition, RPEL integrates easily with 3D gaming environments for real-time effects visualization. For more information, contact John Mann or Jeff Lyons at 407-823-9121.
