Jobs requiring a lifestyle polygraph exam and security clearance may open up at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, wrote ClearedConnections.
A $31 million contract to AEgis Technologies Group from the U.S. Army will support upgrading the performance of two helicopter simulators at the base. Defense and intelligence job opportunities may become available under the new contract.
The two combat mission helicopter simulators, the MH-47/MH60, are located at Fort Campbell. ClearedConnections said the contract may provide new jobs for security clearance personnel. The U.S. Army expects the simulators will be used to train pilots for a number of assignments including:
- Emergency procedures
- Instrument flight training
- Advanced mission training
- Multi-ship exercises
The director of business development at Aegis, Del Beilstein, told the Huntsville Times “Our goal is to completely modernize these simulators and return them to flight training as quickly as possible.”
Getting the contract is a “milestone win” for AEgis, according to president and chief executive officer Steve Hill. The company intends to upgrade the simulators to match the helicopters already in the field.
Based in Huntsville, Alabama, AEgis Technologies Group is a small company employing 235 professionals and has revenues of $44 million in sales. Its Nanogenesis Division develops applications including those for defense, energy, and biotechnology.
