ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FAAC Incorporated, a subsidiary of Arotech Corporation’s [NasdaqGM:ARTX] Training and Simulation Division, announced that it has received an award to continue software support and improvement efforts for the Taiwan Training Range. The contract is valued at $1.9M with a period of performance of three years.
FAAC support under this award will include SimBuilder™ software enhancements, new weapon models, on-site training, and on-site services and software sustainment throughout the period of performance. SimBuilder provides the software infrastructure for Taiwan training range capability. SimBuilder represents FAAC’s exportable weapon system and Integrated Air Defense system modeling solution delivered to Taiwan with FAAC Air Combat Environment for Testing and Training (FACETT®) providing the ability to test and replay scenarios.

This effort is the latest follow-on to FAAC’s original SimBuilder sale to Taiwan in early 2000.
