Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS), headquartered in Orlando, FL, has won a $29 million contract that taps into ECS advanced learning technologies and methodologies to improve medical education and training for Air Force healthcare providers and patients. The US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) contracted with ECS to lead the major Air Force program called Air Force Medical Modeling and Simulation Training (AFMMAST). ECS will apply its advanced learning technologies and training personnel to the Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) Central Program Office in San Antonio, Texas. The program also supports Simulation Centers and Medical Treatment Facilities inside the contiguous United States and at locations outside the U.S. The ECS key team members include Camber Corporation; Comprehensive Medical Services, Inc.; and the University of Miami.
“This program will take advantage of some of our most important technological advances in medical simulation and education which will ensure Air Force medical training and education is the best of the best,” stated Larry Kayne, ECS Chief Operating Officer.
“Our offering is further enhanced by the top-tier medical modeling and simulation, research, development, and educational organizations who are partnered with ECS on this project.” He added. “We feel strongly that we will greatly enhance the already successful life-saving training and education products and services that are delivered to the US Air Force.”
“ECS has been providing medical modeling and simulation to the military for over a decade,” said Waymon Armstrong, ECS President and CEO. “Our team of recognized industry leaders in this area is committed to partnering with both the United States Air Force and United States Army to ensure that we deliver exceptional service to the warfighter and the medical professionals who save their lives.” Armstrong adds, “This contract takes advantage of our advanced learning technologies as it boosts our Technical Services division, significantly growing our company while simultaneously launching our international presence.”
