Five companies have each won contracts under a five-year $97 million award to provide training to soldiers and doctrine and combat development for the Army Armor Center.
CACI International Inc., Camber Corp., Dynamic Research Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Research Triangle Institute were selected for the contract, which consists of one base year and four option years.
Under the contracts, the companies will provide training on armor and maintenance tasks for entry-level and advanced officers. They also will provide doctrine and combat development for the Army's Future Combat Systems, a modernization program that consists of manned and unmanned systems connected by a common network.
The Army Armor Center at Fort Knox, Ky., develops and produces mounted force training strategies, provides live training and uses technologies such as battlefield multimedia simulation for complex field problems.
