CymSTAR has a history of exceeding customer expectations.
As a financially secure and proven supplier, we prefer Firm Fixed Price (FFP) contracts that exemplify our on-time performance:
- New Flight, Sea or Ground-Based Vehicle Tactical, Maintenance, and Part-Task Training Devices
- Low-risk systems engineering and integration for weapon system concurrency upgrades, technology insertions, and obsolescence modifications
- Avionics Modernization Programs, simulation subsystem re-hosting, and flight aerodynamic modeling compliant to Risk Management Framework (RMF)
- Non-proprietary, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, open source software designs, and unlimited data rights leading to lower procurement and life cycle sustainment costs
- Training Systems and live fire range sustainment to include competitive site Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) maintenance, and vital Training Systems Support Center (TSSC) engineering, management, and operation
What We Have Done
Since our inception in 2003, we have developed and delivered 900+ new training devices or training device modifications on 125+ military contracts, either meeting or exceeding the contracted Ready For Training (RFT) date to include Simulation Certification (SIMCERT). Contracts included: A-10, C-5, C-130, F-16, HH-60W CRH, KC-10, KC-46A, KC-135, RC-135, and UH-1N training devices currently under the domains of USAF ATS contracts; UH-1, UH-60A, AH-64, A/MH-6, and NCM3 under the domain of the US ARMY, and C-130 and AV-8B under the USNAVY/USMC domain. CymSTAR is currently performing modifications to existing tactical trainers, as well as build-to-print productions, for the US Army. Additionally, we have performed multiple Maintenance Trainer Modifications and developed a Machine Gun simulator for use at the USMC live fire ranges. Nearly all these programs were awarded as Firm-Fixed Price contracts. CymSTAR Services Experience includes Training System Management, personnel and support for the USAF A-10 ATS, C-5 ATS, C-5 Maintenance and Aircrew Training System (MATS), C-130J MATS, and F-16 TS operations, maintenance and sustainment efforts. US ARMY’s Warfighter focus program which included supported for live fire ranges with engineering and logistical support.
How We Do It
CymSTAR is self-sufficient, performing all its own program management, engineering, integration and testing. Our vast experience in simulator modifications enables us to proactively identify and mitigate technical risks. Our primary mitigation approach is to develop rapid prototypes utilizing in-house test benches or System Integration Laboratories (SIL) for all high-risk items early in the program to verify initial design concepts resulting in eliminating risk. Using this proactive risk mitigation coupled with rigorous testing, CymSTAR identifies and eliminates issues before shipping our products to site for final integration and test. Additionally, we utilization teammates or suppliers who supply existing products resulting in CymSTAR providing low risk solutions. This three prong combined approach enables us to be low risk, very cost-effective at performing on time, within budget and at competitive prices.
