REBASE program to be supported by simulation and analysis company ISTNews
September 03, 2021
DAYTON, Ohio. Infoscitex (IST), a DCS company, has won a contract to provide research, discovery, and development support to the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) under the Redefining the Basic Analytical and Simulation Environment (REBASE) program. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a shared cost ceiling of $48 million over a four-year period of performance.
Under REBASE, AFRL will wim to advance the Department of Defense's modeling, simulation, and analysis capability by developing the Advanced Framework for Simulation, Integration, and Modeling (AFSIM) to address the growing need for accelerated research, discovery, and evaluation of weapon system performance across all warfighting domains.
IST claims it has been involved with AFSIM from the start, supporting AFRL's Aerospace Systems Directorate (AFRL/RQ) through every phase of the framework's development, deployment, and integration since it was acquired by the directorate in 2013 from the Boeing Corporation.
Using its comprehensive insight into the complexities and challenges associated with managing multiple release pipelines and release variants, IST officials claim the company will continue to support AFRL/RQ in its mission to pioneer space and air capabilities in support of the Air Force's mission through enhancing AFSIM's capabilities.
