: 15 February, 2010  (Application Story)
General Dynamics will be providing information technology support for the US Army for the Simulation, Training and Instrumentation division
General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has
been awarded a contract for Constructive Training Systems support by the US 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,' said 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 fulfilment.'

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

The US Army PEO STRI provides life-cycle support for the Army's most advanced training systems around the world and places the power of simulation into the hands of soldiers. As a trusted systems integrator for more than 50 years, General Dynamics Information Technology provides information technology (IT), systems engineering, professional services and simulation and training to customers in the defence, intelligence, homeland security, health, federal civilian government and commercial sectors. With approximately 17,000 professionals worldwide, the company manages large-scale, mission-critical IT programs delivering IT services and enterprise solutions.
