General Dynamics announced on 4 October General Dynamics One Source (a joint venture of GD Mission Systems and GD Information Technology) has been awarded a five-year indefinite quantity indefinite delivery (IDIQ) hybrid contract valued at $465 million for the US Army’s Life Cycle Product Line Management (LCPM) programme.
The company will focus primarily on the Live Training Transformation (LT2) family of straining systems supporting the full range of live training requirements, including Force on Force and Force on Target systems in the Project Manager for Training Devices (PM TRADE) portfolio within the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). Covered will be both individual and collective training systems at home stations, combat training centres, live and digital ranges, military operations in urban terrain (MOUT) facilities and additional ranges worldwide.
General Dynamics will also be responsible for defining, implementing and managing the LT2 hardware product line through trade studies, analysis and forecasting, data collection, design, development, impact assessments, cyber security, materiel procurement, integration, installation, testing, system training, documentation, logistics support, obsolescence management and disposal.
“Providing soldiers [with] a realistic live training experience is a critical factor in the Army’s ongoing modernisation effort,” commented incoming President of General Dynamics Mission Systems, Chris Brady. “This award grows our training portfolio by adding hardware product line management to our existing software product line management for the Army and positions General Dynamics for future growth.”
