Alelo Wins Additional DoD Contracts

Los Angeles-based Alelo, which develops computer-aided training and simulation for the U.S. Department of Defense, says it has received a new set of contracts to provide cultural awareness training for the Levant, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Financial details of the new contracts were not announced. Alelo said its new cultural awareness training courses help the U.S. military to develop skills to trust and cooperation from local armed forces and civilian populations. The new courses cover Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Pakistan, with language coverage of Modern Standard Arabic, Urdu, Pashtu and Dari. Alelo uses computer gaming technology and engines as a key part of its training and simulation software.
