Special submission by PM TRASYS
On Sept. 8, Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS) held the Change of Charter ceremony for the Product Manager (PdM) for Individual Training Systems (ITS). PM TRASYS Program Manager (PM), Col. William (Walt) Yates, oversaw the relinquishment of duties from outgoing PdM for ITS, Anthony (Tony) Carbonari, to the incoming PdM for ITS, William (Dan) Vorhies. The ceremony was held near PM TRASYS home office in Orlando, Florida.
Vorhies comes to PM TRASYS from within Marine Corps Systems Command from the PM for Infantry Weapons Systems as the PdM for Anti-Armor Systems; Carbonari will be taking on the duties of the Director of Operations for PM TRASYS.
The duties of Individual Training Systems are to support the individual Marine, crew, section, and platoon in familiarity, function, home station, pre-deployment, and sustainment of their warfighting skills.
This training is accomplished through virtual and simulated training systems that support motor transport tactical vehicles, convoy operations scenarios, organic weapons marksmanship and tactics, and combat supporting arms training for both active and reserve Marine Forces.
Marines may be familiar with systems such as the Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer (ISMT), the family of Egress Trainers (FET), the Supporting Arms Virtual Trainer (SAVT), and the USMC Operator Driver Simulator (USMC-ODS), among other systems managed by PM TRASYS.
