The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation and Missile Center's Systems Simulation, Software and Integration Directorate has awarded Booz Allen Hamilton a potential five-year, $561M task order to improve human performance within the service branch and other federal agencies, Booz Allen announced on Monday.

“Increasing warfighter effectiveness and reducing potential loss of life require a deep understanding of the U.S. Army's mission, expertise in the latest technologies, and access to cross-sector partnerships,“ said Greg Wenzel, executive vice president for Booz Allen and a 2019 Wash100 Award recipient.

Booz Allen will deploy an athlete management system used by some of the top professional sports associations around the world to provide elite-level holistic fitness guidance to our service men and women in uniform.

This sport performance platform will leverage cognitive services to deliver deep insights into the training using data and artificial intelligence. This tactical human dimension training program will include augmented and virtual reality simulations to create a cohesive platform that improves not only physical performance but also elements of cognitive performance.

“Booz Allen is helping the Army arm the digital soldier with the latest cross-reality, artificial intelligence, and data-centric solutions to improve their physical and psychological performance as well as tactical equipment design and implementation,“ Wenzel added.
