Corsair, a veteran-owned small business, was formed in November 1994. Corsair employs approximately 78 engineers, programmers, analysts, and support staff. Corsair currently provides training services under subcontracts to Lockheed Martin Company, Akima Infrastructure Services, and Sensor Technologies, Inc, plus a prime contract with the US Army, Aviation Missile Command (AMC), Redstone Arsenal. More specifically:
- Subcontract with Lockheed Martin - Develop Computer Based Training (CBT) to support aircrew training of
ASE being installed on the KC-130T scheduled for delivery to USN and USMC reserve squadrons. The training
is to leverage off of previous efforts developed for NAVAIR PMA-205 as well as ongoing CBT being developed
to support the US Army aviation fleet. This latter effort utilizes updated development technologies and
is Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant. The premise for this development is to
develop a platform specific awareness product for the KC-130T that will incorporate and integrate existing ASE
systems as appropriate into the suite. The KC-130T requirements are to support training on systems AN/APR-39A(V)2,
AN/AAR-47A(V)2, AN/ALE-47, and AN/ALQ-157A(V) with the following products:
- Design Strategy Document: A Design Strategy Document (DSD) will be delivered twenty working days after contract award and will indicate the general design interface for the C130T ASE Awareness program. The DSD will follow accepted guidelines based on the ASE products previously produced for the Government (PMA 272).
- Storyboards: Storyboards will be delivered by aircraft platform for USG review in accordance with the Program Management Plan. The review will be conducted by USG identified Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Technical and functional discrepancies will be noted and corrected for review during the alpha on-screen review.
- Preliminary On-Screen Review (Alpha): A formal on-screen review will be conducted IAW the PMP for the ASE Awareness program. The review will confirm that discrepancies noted in Task C are completed and are technically accurate. The guideline for the review will be to confirm that Task C items are complete and to check the final courseware for technical accuracy.
- User Documentation: An update to existing user documentation shall be performed to include C130T specific requirements. The user documentation will be delivered in both electronic and hard copy medium and will be subject to review and comment. Topics covered will address the installation, operation, and maintenance of the courseware.
- Final Delivery: The ASE awareness program will be delivered on CD-ROM for each aircraft platform in accordance with the PMP. The master copy will be delivered to SRI for duplication and further distribution.
- Source Files: Source files for all developed programs become the property of the USG and will be delivered in a format (CD-ROM/DVD) to be determined and in accordance with the PMP. The delivery method of classified source files will be addressed during the kickoff meeting.
- Prime Contract with US Army, AMC, Redstone Arsenal - Corsair will update and conduct an analysis as described in the following paragraphs.
- Task A - Implement changes to the LTS TM, CBT, and PSS products as noted.
- Task B - Conduct a data gathering and analysis of the LTS and other support equipment that will be used to determine course content for a new LTS Operator/Maintainer course. The contractor will use the guidelines listed in the MIL PRF 29612 and Data Item Description (DID)DI-ALSS-81517 Training Situation Document to develop a report that lists the following content in accordance with Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) A001
- Subcontract with Akima Infrastructure Services, LLC - Corsair shall be responsible for the development of 2D/3D CBT/WBT courseware(s)associated with the AN/TPQ-36(V)10 to include (but not limited to) system introduction, operation, upgrade components familiarization, functionality, maintenance, remove and replace procedures, and application and HAZMAT disposal and safety. The objective is for Corsair to provide CBT courseware that supports Maintenance training that can also be output to the web as WBT and that can easily be internet-hosted on Army Knowledge Online (AKO) or locally hosted on intranets and used on demand by the Soldier. The CBT/WBT shall be Shared Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant and adhere to Training & Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Pamphlet (PAM) 350-70-2. At a minimum, each Enabling Learning Objective (ELO) shall be a separate Shared Content Object (SCO). The CBT/WBT shall be compatible with all current versions of the major browsers and may use additional functionality in the form of common browser plug-ins and ActiveX controls or Java applets. The CBT/WBT will have linking to the IETM. This linking shall tie the CBT subject to the same subject in the IETM. CBT linking is only required from the CBT to the IETM. Training and course material shall be delivered in accordance with DI-SESS-81526B.
- Subcontract with Sensor Technologies, Inc. - Corsair shall provide services to include engineering, logistics,
and business operations support. These services may be performed in conjunction with all new and existing
C4ISR platforms, systems, subsystems, items, systems of systems, and families of systems . The following definitions apply:
