The U.S. Joint Forces Command has selected Northrop Grumman Corporation to continue providing technology support to the Joint Warfighting Center (JWFC) in Suffolk, Va. The initial two-year $218 million contract awarded Friday has a potential value of $686 million over six years, if all options are exercised.

The JWFC prepares U.S. armed forces and coalition partners to fight as an integrated "joint force" in current operations and for future contingencies. The program includes conducting realistic, large-scale warfighting exercises for a collection of networked training sites, using computer simulations, modeling, collaborative tools and other technologies that are linked to actual command and control systems.

"As it has for the past 12 years, Northrop Grumman is completely committed to the JWFC's critical mission of making our armed forces ready for the diverse, global conflicts of today and tomorrow. We and our team are bringing innovative capabilities, advanced technologies and transformational expertise - particularly in modeling, simulation, and command, control and intelligence systems - to ensure mission success," said Jerry B. Agee, corporate vice president and president of the Northrop Grumman Mission Systems sector.

Under the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract, Northrop Grumman and its team will provide the full spectrum of support, including developing doctrine, tactics, techniques and procedures; planning and executing joint exercises and events; reviewing and assessing training exercises and providing lessons learned; and providing simulation and communication support to the JWFC commander.

"We consider it our duty and a privilege to provide a full spectrum of support, including mission rehearsals, that best prepares our forces worldwide for ongoing operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Beyond our Suffolk-based activities, this contract also calls for digitally distributed training around the world and the routine deployment of our personnel to some of the world's hot spots," said Keith Beavers, director of advanced warfighting solutions for Northrop Grumman in Hampton Roads, Va.

The members of Northrop Grumman's team are: Adayana Inc., Edina, Minn.; Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, Va.; Capstone Corp., Alexandria, Va.; Coker Logistics Solutions, Reston, Va.; Concurrent Technologies Corp., Johnstown, Pa.; 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.
