FAIRFAX, Va., 15 Feb. 2010. General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, won a contract for Constructive Training Systems support by the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). The total potential value of this single-award, five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract is $387 million if all options are exercised.

The initial award value is $56 million for the base year.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will provide technical, management, and professional engineering support services for the procurement and fielding of Constructive Training Systems (CTS).

Services to be performed consist of engineering, integration, exercise and experimentation support, gaming, materiel purchases, maintenance, supply support, and post-fielding support to PEO STRI and the Project Manager for Constructive Simulations (PM ConSim). The work will be managed in the Orlando, Fla., area.

"This award continues General Dynamics' long-standing relationship with PEO STRI, enabling the PM ConSim to execute its mission of acquiring, fielding and sustaining the constructive simulations used to support the Army's command and staff training requirements," says Zannie Smith, senior vice president of General Dynamics Information Technology's Army Solutions Division. "Our extensive knowledge of customer requirements and proven performance will allow the flexibility and quick response to dynamic program changes to achieve mission fulfillment."

The programs supported through the contract include the Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability, Battle Command Training Center Equipment Support, Combined Arms Command and Control Upgrade System, Training, and Doctrine Command, and Common Battle Command Simulation Equipment.

The U.S. Army PEO STRI provides life-cycle support for the Army's advanced training systems around the world and places the power of simulation into the hands of warfighters, says a representative.
