Northrop Grumman has formed its team that will bid to continue providing joint-training support to the U.S. Joint Forces Command's Joint Warfighting Center. The JWFC provides a globally integrated, transformational training environment to best prepare U.S. armed forces to fight. The winner of this $250 million, six-year contract will play an important part in helping the JWFC accomplish its mission of conducting, supporting and assessing joint training and developing joint doctrines.

Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector is leading the team, which combines a core of proven performers and a number of new members. The team members were carefully selected to provide the unique capabilities required to prepare U.S. forces and government and coalition partners to operate in today's complex and ever-changing world.

"The core members of our team have a long history of supporting the ever-evolving requirements of joint training," said Keith Beavers, director of advanced warfighting solutions for Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. "The new members, which include several highly agile and leading-edge training technologists, bring the team even greater depth and breadth of training experience."

The members of Northrop Grumman's team are: Adayana Inc., Edina, Minn.; Anteon International Corp., Fairfax, Va.; Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, Va.; Capstone Corp., Alexandria, Va.; Concurrent Technologies Corp., Johnstown, Pa.; Cornerstone Industry Inc., Alexandria, Va.; Cubic Defense Applications, San Diego; General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, Arlington, Va.; Intelligent Decision Systems Inc., Centreville, Va.; Lockheed Martin Corp., Bethesda, Md.; Loyola Enterprises Inc., Virginia Beach, Va.; MPRI, Alexandria, Va.; MYMIC, Portsmouth, Va.; System Studies and Simulation Inc., Huntsville, Ala.; and SRS Technologies, Newport Beach, Calif.

"As the JWFC mission has expanded over the years, we have been there to support the accomplishment of that mission," Beavers said. "With the nation at war, we owe the JWFC and, more importantly, the men and women of the U.S. armed forces it trains, the strongest possible team to provide the very best in joint training. We see it as our duty and firmly believe we have formed just that team."
