General Dynamics has been awarded a $465 million contract to provide realistic live training exercises for the U.S. Army’s Life Cycle Product Line Management Program.
“Providing soldiers a realistic live training experience is a critical factor in the Army’s ongoing modernization effort,” said Chris Brady, vice president of engineering and incoming president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. “This award grows our training portfolio by adding hardware product line management to our existing software product line management for the Army and positions General Dynamics for future growth.”
Awarded by the Army Contracting Command, the 5-year, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract is a hybrid cost-plus fixed fee, firm fixed price and time-and-material award worth $465 million, the company said. The award was made to General Dynamics One Source, a joint venture of two General Dynamics companies: General Dynamics Mission Systems and General Dynamics Information Technology.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will focus on Live Training Transformation Family of Training Systems to support a number of live training requirements, including Force on Force and Force on Target systems, for the Project Manager for Training Devices portfolio within the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.
Requirements will include both individual training and collective training systems at unit home stations, combat training centers, military operations on urban terrain, live fire and digital ranges, and additional training ranges located worldwide.
