LockMart Receives Urban Operations Training System Contract Award
Orlando FL (SPX) Jan 20, 2011
The U.S. Army's Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation awarded Lockheed Martin an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide Urban Operations Training Systems (UOTS) for the U.S. Army, Army Reserve and National Guard. The award includes an initial $22,000 delivery order with a potential value of $287 million over five years.
"We believe this training program will allow us to respond quickly to Warfighters' critical requirements through immersive environments," said Jim Craig, vice president of training systems at Lockheed Martin's Global Training and Logistics business unit.
"We aimed to deliver an affordable solution that gives trainees the ability to tailor their training experience easily and quickly."
The UOTS program will support the full spectrum of operations - from traditional war fighting tactics, to nation-building, to overseas contingency operations.
The contract includes the Integrated Military Operations and Urban Terrain (MOUT) Training Systems, Mobile MOUTs and the Combat Training Center MOUT Instrumentation System.
The UOTS supports permanent and non-permanent structure facilities, including addition or expansion to existing facilities. It also supports the integration across sites and live, virtual and constructive mission domains, as well as the continuation of instrumentation and data processing growth corresponding with tactical systems.
Lockheed Martin currently provides a wide range of targetry, indoor / outdoor range instrumentation, counter-improvised explosive device training and equipment integration capabilities to U.S. Department of Defense forces.
The UOTS program will involve integrating many of these capabilities along with other technologies into a comprehensive training system.
