The Army awarded Northrop Grumman [NOC] a $128 million contract to continue support its Mission Command Training Center (MCTC), officials said on Monday.
Under the new Mission Training Complex Contractor Support program, Northrop Grumman will offer live and virtual simulation-driven exercises for unified land operations and updated operational environments.
“We value the partnership we’ve built with the Army through MCTC over the years, and are excited to continue supporting them with innovative and transformative live, virtual and constructive solutions that help prepare our warfighters with immersive training,” Cathie Gridley, vice president of Northrop’s advanced defense systems division, said in a statement.
Along with providing simulation exercises, Northrop Grumman will also continue offering gaming-based training, mission staff training and ongoing technical support. The Army has worked with Northrop Grumman on MCTC efforts for 16 years.
Northrop Grumman’s work for MCTC is based out of Fort Hood, with support sites at Fort Bliss in Texas, Fort Carson in Colorado, Fort Riley in Kansas and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.
