Army officials will begin accepting proposals later this month to design a virtual warfare facility to be housed at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

The new Virtual Warfare Center Operations (VWC-N Ops) facility will be used as hub for military aircraft simulators, including for the F-15C, F-15-E and the AWACS.

The cost of construction for the new facility is estimated between $25 million to $50 million.  

F-35 and F-22 simulators are also expected to be added to the VWC-N Ops facility upon construction.

The new training center may house Navy simulators, including for F-35 and F-22 aircraft, as well as the Aegis ship combat systems. Potential additions include training mechanisms for bombers, Remotely Piloted Aircraft and future cyber and space domain workstations.

The VWC-N Ops center will also function as a facility for exercise management, mission briefing and planning, intelligence collection management, mission and threat analysis and equipment repair.

Construction proposals for the fixed-price, one-step design-build contract will be accepted from Jan. 26 to Feb. 28, according to the FedBizOpps notice.
