Business Wire

FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- November 12, 2012

The United States Army has awarded CSC (NYSE: CSC) a firm fixed price (FFP)
contract modification to upgrade a simulator-based flight and related aviation
training device for the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence at Ft. Rucker,
Ala. Awarded in the second quarter of CSC’s 2013 fiscal year, the contract
modification has a six-month base period and ten one-year options, for a total
value of $34 million. The contract modifications were awarded under the Flight
School XXI indefinite-delivery requirements contract, which CSC won in 2003.

Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will upgrade the Reconfigurable
Collective Training Devices (RCTD) to more closely simulate the Block 2 model
of the OH-58D aircraft and enhance the interoperability between new and
existing technologies.

“Since the Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices reached full operational
capability in 2007, the simulation technology has advanced and increased the
fidelity of training,” said Alan B. Weakley, vice president and general
manager of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group. “These upgrades
will allow the U.S. Army to conduct collective training missions, such as
aviation exercises using the Block 2 configuration of the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior

Under the Flight School XXI contract, CSC provides cost-effective simulation
training in realistic combat environments that supplement the live aircraft
experience. Students experience combat conditions in realistic environments on
terrain that they will see in the future while learning to fly and fight.

The RCTD allows units to train collectively to most closely simulate the roles
and responsibilities of each individual as they relate to the overall
situation and includes 18 manned-modules that are representative of and can be
reconfigured to U.S. Army aircraft, including the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, AH-64D
Apache, UH-60A/L Blackhawk and CH-47D Chinook.
