A defense contractor with an office in North Charleston has been named to Military Training Technology magazine’s 2008 Top Simulation Companies list.
The list SGIS joined is made up of companies that have made a significant impact in the military training industry throughout the current fiscal year, whether in flight simulation, distributed learning, visual systems or various other training programs.
“We have worked hard to establish ourselves as a leader within the simulation industry and are proud of our contributions and the work we perform within this sector,” said SGIS managing partner Mark Moore. “This award further demonstrates our commitment to innovation and to our customers, which are our top priorities.”
Last year, the Army awarded SGIS a $14.5 million contract to create a program that is in use at eight Army bases globally.
SGIS has 14 offices throughout the United States, including the one in North Charleston; the company’s corporate headquarters is in San Diego.
The company works locally under a contract with Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Charleston to assist the FBI with a messaging center used to combat cyber-based attacks and high-tech crimes.
It assists the Navy through another contract with SPAWAR by developing tools and tactical displays to aid war fighters in their attempts to preclude national security threats.
