Kentucky Trailer wins order for COFT-SA

Oasis Advanced Engineering Inc has selected Kentucky Trailer Technologies (KTT) to provide 30 trailers to support their Mobile Conduct Of Fire Trainer – Situational Awareness (COFT-SA) contract for the US Army and US Army National Guard.

The COFT-SA trainer replicates the performance of the M2/M3A2 Operation Desert Storm-Situational Awareness (ODS-SA) Bradley Fighting Vehicle (BFV) enabling the crew to operate a BFV vehicle platform in a synthetic environment.

KTT said that the main purpose of the trailer is ‘to provide an environmentally controlled, safe, effective, transportable and readily maintainable mobile environment for COFT-SA training’.

The COFT-SA system is managed by the Project Manager for Combined Arms Tactical Training (PM CATT), part of the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) organisation that is also the contracting authority for the programme.

The company also provided Oasis with seven units prior to the award of the COFT-SA contract.

‘We appreciate the confidence placed in us by both Oasis Advance Engineering and PEO STRI and look forward to providing support for this exceptional programme,’ said John Mattman, director of business development at KTT.

COFT-SA systems will be supplied in support of US Army National Guard and US Army active component deployments of Bradley M2/A2/A3 ODS-SA and will replace older Bradley Advanced Training System (BATS).

Shephard understands that this replacement strategy had become urgent due to hardware issues with the BATS image generation systems.

KTT is no stranger to providing its trailers for military training requirements. Previous contracts include deliveries for the Raydon Virtual Convoy Operations Trainer (VCOT), the Lockheed Martin Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) and Advanced Gunnery Training System (AGTS) as well as the the L3 Link Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (AVCATT).
