Army awards battlefield simulation contract

The Army has awarded a $74.1 million contract to AT&T Government Solutions of Vienna, Va., to develop simulated battlefield training systems under its One Tactical Engagement Simulation System program.

Under the contract, AT&T and a team of contractors will develop the next-generation 'force on force' and 'force on target' war game system. OneTESS will replace the Army's current laser-based systems, according to a company announcement.

The award, announced today, was handed down by the Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.

AT&T was also recently awarded a communications infrastructure subcontract to Lockheed Martin Corp. under the National Training Center Objective Instrumentation System contract. This award is valued at $60 million.

AT&T will design, develop and implement a networking infrastructure for the Army's National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. The network will support voice, data and video communications.
