Lockheed Martin Visual Interactive Simulation Training Application (VISTATM) for Pakistan Navy


Lockheed Martin Canada, Ottawa, Canada, is being awarded a $21,439,277 cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide development, maintenance and upgrade of the Visual Interactive Simulation Training Application (VISTA) computer based synthetic operations and maintenance trainers in support of the Center for Surface Combat Systems. VISTA is a flexible high-fidelity computer based networked system that provides a training environment for both operation and corrective maintenance tasks on selected combat systems. The simulations are designed with fault scenarios representative of those experienced on the actual equipment so that troubleshooting, isolation, removal and replacement of the components may be practiced by the technicians under instruction. This contract combines purchases for the Navy (25 percent); Japan (20 percent); Pakistan (20 percent); Spain (20 percent); and Norway (15 percent). Work is being performed in Canada (90 percent); Dahlgren, Virginia (2 percent); Norway (2 percent); Japan (2 percent); Pakistan (2 percent); and Spain (2 percent), and is expected to be completed by September 2022. Foreign military sales funding in the amount of $710,000 will be obligated at time of award and contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was not competitively procured in accordance with 10 U.S. Code 2304(c)(1) and implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation 6.302-1(a)(2)(iii) – only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, Dahlgren, Virginia, is the contracting activity (N00178-17-D-5001).

Visual Interactive Simulation Training Application (VISTATM) is designed to effectively train maintainers and operators of complex equipment while minimizing or eliminating the need for access to the actual equipment. VISTA provides the user with a high-fidelity real-time simulation that allows a student to operate, diagnose and repair equipment in a “real world” dynamic free-play environment. VISTA provides a versatile and flexible learning environment that offers numerous advantages over any other training technology. Instructors (in a networked classroom) or students (on a single Personal Computer) can select from a variety of system faults to practice diagnostic techniques and improve their cognitive skills.

  • Up to 40% reduction in training time
  • Significantly reduces instructor preparation time
  • Very low life-cycle costs
  • Reduces or eliminates the requirement for expensive training equipment, spares support and maintenance staff
  • Reduced travel costs and living
  • VISTA is always available…eliminates training interruptions caused by inoperable ‘actual equipment’
  • All students have simultaneous access to their own synthetic system
  • Inexpensive means of solving multi-site training requirements
