FAAC Incorporated, part of Arotech Corporation’s (NASDAQ: ARTX) Training and Simulation Division, has announced a $2.1 million contract for the Toronto Transit Commission’s Light Rail Vehicle simulator. The Light Rail Vehicle is a new railcar being produced by Bombardier Transportation. Under subcontract to Bombardier Transportation, FAAC will design, develop, and deliver the simulator to support Toronto Transit Commission’s training program.
