Army awards contract for simulations

The Army has chosen Northrop Grumman Corp. of Los Angeles for a 10-year, $408 million contract to provide battle command training support to Army corps, division and brigade commanders to improve warfighting capabilities.

The contract was awarded in late June, said a Northrop Grumman spokeswoman, and work is under way.

As part of the contract, Northrop Grumman's information technology sector will provide planning and support for warfighter exercises that simulate command and control decision-making under realistic conditions.

Work on the contract will be carried out at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and supported at major Army command centers worldwide.

Northrop Grumman's teammates on the contract include Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va., and Cubic Corp. of San Diego. The team beat out competitor Anteon International Corp. of Fairfax, Va., and its partner, Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego.
