by Staff Writers
Orlando FL (SPX) Feb 16, 2006
Raytheon Technical Services and Computer Sciences Corporation have established the Warrior Training Alliance, whose member companies are dedicated to providing integrated training support to the U.S. Army warfighter. The WTA is bidding for the Army's upcoming Warfighter Field Operations Customer Support program.

Under the direction of the Program Executive Office, Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation, Warfighter FOCUS will provide the U.S. Army with life- cycle contractor support services for training and training devices worldwide.

The WTA offers the Army a diverse alliance of companies with experience delivering flexible, integrated solutions that address warfighters' needs. WTA companies are knowledgeable about current and evolving mission requirements, and can deliver functional enhancements and cost improvements through the integration of live, virtual and constructive training (LVC) environments. These companies currently deliver the majority of LVC services to the Army, providing training support at major training centers worldwide.

Raytheon and CSC have a legacy of successful collaboration implementing complex programs, including working together on the U.S. Air Force Space Command's Eastern Range for the past 17 years.

"WTA will deliver the collective expertise of the largest and most qualified current Army training support contractors as a unified, fully integrated team supporting the warfighter," said Bryan J. Even, a vice president of Raytheon Company and president of Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC (RTSC). "The WTA and each of its member companies are dedicated to providing premier training support to U.S. and coalition troops. Our combined experience in mission systems integration and life-cycle mission support enable the WTA to offer the best solution for the Army's training requirements - today, and for the future."

"The alliance is fully committed to delivering a complete, proven training solution for the Army's current demanding operations, as well as future force objectives, while offering exceptional value," said Austin Yerks, president of CSC's Defense Integrated Solutions & Services organization. "Our member companies have extensive experience delivering key results and helping the Army realize its training transformation vision."
