Field OPS


Soldier Non-Systems (SNS) supports (worldwide) Soldier training through sustainment and operations of entrusted “non system” Training Aid Devices, Simulations and Simulators (TADSS) and programs. SNS performs life-cycle management for fielding Program Managers (PMs), Army Training Support Center (ATSC) and other strategic partners.


PM Field OPS SNS supports over 225,000 training devices worldwide using two on-going contracts:

  1. Warfighter FOCUS (WFF) Contract
  2. Artillery and Chemical Training (ACT) Contract, which is a five-year 8(a) (small business set aside) contract

WFF provides sustainment, support, and, in some cases, operation of legacy and newly fielded Tactical Engagement Simulation Systems (TESS) equipment. For the Engagement Skills Trainer 2000 (EST 2000), training support includes scenario development and operation, recording of units’ performance, and preparation of training results. For the Medical Simulation Training Centers (MSTC), training support includes sound effects, battlefield effects, the smells of war, realistic threat environments, and reaction recording. WFF also supports training data collection using internal and external field camera systems – the information it gathers is used in the preparation and presentation of the AARs for the units’ evaluation. Sustainment efforts also include installation of TESS, hardware maintenance, interaction/training of unit personnel, instrumented operations and preparation of After Action Reviews (AARs).

The Artillery and Chemical Training Contract (ACT)

ACT is an 8(a) set-aside for providing worldwide Life-Cycle Contractor Support for the U.S. Army’s Air Defense, Field Artillery and Chemical Training devices. It supports more than 1,300 training devices located worldwide. These include the Call For Fire Trainer, Fire Support Combined Arms Tactical Trainer and the Chemical Agent Monitoring Simulator.

Ground TES MILES Survey:

The survey provides information that aids Field OPS in management process of the Ground TES MILES support contract. The information from each report will be consolidated on a monthly basis and utilized to provide feedback to the Support Contractor and PEO-STRI in performance of said contract. Based upon the local security requirement, access to the associated Ground TES survey form is provided below.
