The FOX system was selected as the enterprise information technology platform for the U.S. Army education and training programs, to increase its training efficiency and to support force readiness
Britannica Knowledge Systems announces the award of a $70 million contract to supply its Fox Training Management System to the U.S. Army, as part of the ATIS (Army Training Information System) program.
Fox will replace over 30 separate systems the Army is currently using and will unify Training Management, Training Scheduling, Resource Management, Training Development and Learning Management capabilities into one comprehensive integrated environment.
The solution will be the enterprise training management platform for institutional training, operational training and individual self-development, and will provide the Army with a real-time situational awareness of combat readiness with reduced training operations costs and complexity.
In addition, Fox, which has been tested over the course of a year, will provide a common operating picture, will be the authoritative data source for Army training, and will be a single-entry point for all army training operations.
The contract, transacted via the American firm Perspecta, will be implemented over a four-year period.
Asher Dagan, CEO of Britannica Knowledge Systems, said, “Britannica brings a unique combination of advanced technology, comprehensive capabilities, and a deep understanding of the needs and objectives of training in the area of defense. One of the requirements of the U.S. Army was a commercial off-the-shelf system configured for the army’s specific needs and for managing the extensive training of Army units and individuals. We are proud that we were able to meet those demands and are looking forward to a successful project.”
