- Qualification opens up new opportunities for U.S. subsidiary -
TORONTO, Feb. 4 /CNW/ - Atlantis Systems Corp. (TSX: AIQ) today announced
that its wholly owned subsidiary, Atlantis Systems America, Inc. (ASA), has
been qualified by the US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation,
Training and Instrumentation as a contractor under STOC II, a 10-year
Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contracting vehicle. This
gives ASA the opportunity to pursue, bid, win, and execute contracts with the
US Army in support of their training products and services requirements that
are released against STOC II.
STOC II, valued at US$17.5 billion over the next 10 years, serves as an
efficient contracting vehicle in order to quickly get the next generation of
simulation and training products and services into the hands of U.S. and
coalition service members.
"Achieving ID/IQ contract status with the US Army is an important
achievement and reflects ASA's solid military track record," said Henrik
Noesgaard, CEO of Atlantis Systems. "It positions ASA to win new business and
extends the Special Security Agreement between ASA and the Defense Security
Service, which increases the security position of the company, thereby
enhancing its ability to capture similar future awards."
