February 21, 2023 – Ternion Corporation was awarded a task order to perform for a fourth year on its five-year contract for the development, sustainment, maintenance, and procurement of the FLAMES Automated Simulation Trainer (FAST). FAST is used as the embedded training simulation of the United States Marine Corps’ (USMC) Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S). Ternion continues to provide software lifecycle sustainment and maintenance for the CAC2S FAST baseline, as well as engineering services that enable the development, integration, and fielding of new capabilities.
FAST is a custom FLAMES-based simulation developed by Ternion Corporation to serve as the central constructive simulation in live-virtual-constructive (LVC) training exercises. Over the course of CAC2S development, FAST has been integrated into CAC2S and interfaced with several CAC2S systems to support CAC2S operator training.
CAC2S is managed within the portfolio of Program Executive Officer Land Systems (PEO LS) in Quantico, Virginia. The work for the contract is performed by Ternion Corporation in Huntsville, Alabama.
