GD keeps work on Army training system

General Dynamics has retained a contract to continue development and support of an electronic warfare training and simulation system.

GD had been working on the Intelligence and Electronic Warfare Tactical Proficiency Trainer under a sole source contract, but it won the $9.7 million follow-on contract in a competition with three other companies.

The trainer is described by the Army as a “highly realistic simulation” for military intelligence systems that uses live and virtual scenarios and vignettes to replicate combat situations. It supports the “train as you fight” concept.

The system is used to train military intelligence personnel, battle staff, system operators, collectors and analysts. It replicates the Intelligence Operational Environment and the Decisive Action Training Environment.

Trainers can insert into the training the latest tactics, techniques and procedures as well as local tactical standard operating procedures.

From documents posted on Deltek, GD has been working on the project since about 2007 under a contract worth about $77 million. There have been funding peaks and valleys, according to the justification document.

The Army retained documentation, technical data rights and other intellectual property so that it could conduct an open competition.

The new contract runs through Feb. 21, 2021.
