General Dynamics Mission Systems has won a contract valued $883 million to modernize the US Army’s live training programs over eight years.
“General Dynamics Mission Systems announced today it was awarded a contract for the Army Consolidated Product Line Management Plus (CPM Plus) Program from the Army Contracting Command in Orlando, Florida,” the company said in a statement Tuesday.
Executing the contract will improve the Army’s individual and collective expeditionary training systems at unit home stations and the major Combat Training Centers, including Military Operations on Urban Terrain training sites, live fire and digital ranges and additional training facilities.
The company will work on extensive Live Training Transformation (LT2) Product Line, the Common Training Instrumentation Architecture, and the Live Training Engagement Composition for the Project Manager for Soldier Training portfolio within the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.
The operational focus will be implemented through an agile, capabilities-based organization to evolve the LT2 Family of Training Systems. The intent is to reduce total ownership cost and operational complexity, to increase technology agility and concurrency, and to enable enhanced Soldier training effectiveness, GD said.
General Dynamics’ Product Line Engineering approach will build upon the Project Manager for Soldier Training’s investments to extend product line governance, processes and tools supporting new training domains such as Virtual Training Systems and the Synthetic Training Environment.
CPM Plus is a follow-on contract to CPM Next, which was awarded to General Dynamics in 2015.
