Ahtna Support and Training Services, LLC (AhtnaSTS) began work on an Artillery Chemical Trainer (ACT) contract June 1 and is now providing service to the Army at seven different installations, including locations in Germany and the Republic of Korea.

The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) is valued at just over $2 million per year, with a service period of approximately 4.5 years.

The ACT contract, which was held by Ahtna Development Corporation (ADC) from 2000-2008, focuses on supporting the training needs of America’ s military personnel by operating, maintaining and providing logistics support to various simulator systems. This is done by our team of highly-qualified technicians, who perform a range of technical work on equipment by completing diagnostic checks, component replacements and extensive maintenance. These simulators represent a variety of military systems and vehicles. Using the simulators saves money by preserving equipment, weapons and vehicles from excessive wear and tear and helps to prepare our nation’s military for whatever task they may be asked to perform.
