Northrop Grumman Awarded $100 Million US Army III Corps Training Command Contract

HERNDON, Va. — The U.S. Army has award­ed Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­ra­tion (NYSE:NOC) a five-year, $100 mil­lion con­tract to con­tin­ue sup­port of the III Corps Mis­sion Com­mand Train­ing Cen­ter (MCTC).

The pro­gram, which was award­ed under the Oper­a­tions Plan­ning Train­ing and Resource Sup­port Ser­vices (OPTARSS) II con­tract, will pro­vide train­ing for Army mis­sion com­mand sys­tems, sim­u­la­tion-dri­ven staff train­ing exer­cis­es, and immer­sive train­ing for pla­toon and com­pa­ny con­voy and counter-IED oper­a­tions. The con­tract includes one base year and four option years.

“We’ve proud­ly sup­port­ed the MCTC pro­gram for more than a decade with supe­ri­or time-test­ed per­for­mance,” said Greg Schmidt, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er, Northrop Grumman’s Train­ing Solu­tions divi­sion. “Our train­ing is based on the lat­est tac­tics, tech­niques and pro­ce­dures derived from lessons learned in the­ater and enables com­plete mis­sion readi­ness so when a warfight­er reach­es the bat­tle­field, they feel like they’ve already been there.”

Northrop Grum­man has pro­vid­ed sup­port to the MCTC at Fort Hood and Fort Bliss, Texas, Fort Car­son, Colo., Fort Sill, Okla., Fort Riley, Kan., and Fort Knox, Ky., since 2001.

“Cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion, afford­abil­i­ty and warfight­er readi­ness are our biggest pri­or­i­ties with MCTC,” said Shirley DeG­root, pro­gram man­ag­er of III Corps MCTC for Northrop Grumman’s Train­ing Solu­tions divi­sion. “Northrop Grumman’s posi­tion at the fore­front of Army train­ing and the live-vir­tu­al-con­struc­tive are­na reduces risk for our nation’s ser­vice­men and women.”

Northrop Grum­man is a lead­ing glob­al secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny pro­vid­ing inno­v­a­tive sys­tems, prod­ucts and solu­tions in aero­space, elec­tron­ics, infor­ma­tion sys­tems, and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial cus­tomers world­wide.
