Anteon Wins $47 Million Battle Simulation Contract

The Army has awarded Anteon Corp. a fixed-price contract for battle simulation services, valued at $47 million over nine years if all options are exercised.

Under the contract, Anteon and its subcontractor, BTG Inc., both of Fairfax, Va., will provide operational and administrative support for III Corps Battle Simulation Centers, including software enhancements for specialized applications.

"We are pleased to bring our extensive computer-based training and distance-learning capabilities to the III Corps, one of the Army's major combat organizations," said Joseph Kampf, Anteon's president and chief executive officer. "In this era of electronic warfare and complex battle plans, there is ever more for the warfighter to learn, and performance improvement is critical."

Anteon will support the full spectrum of the Army's computer-based simulation models, including brigade and battalion battle simulation, digital battle staff trainer and joint intelligence models.

The company also will provide simulation support for new command, control, computers, communications and intelligence systems.

Anteon will support distance-learning initiatives, distributing simulations to remote sites from Fort Hood, Texas, main frame computers via both T-1 and dial-up communications.

In addition to providing instructors and technicians for worldwide III Corps training support, the company will assist Army commanders in evaluating the success of simulation and training exercises through extensive after-action-reviews using Vision XXI AAR software.

The work will be performed at Fort Hood; Fort Carson, Colo.; Fort Riley, Kan.; and various locations internationally.
