DOD joint command awards $28.9m training pact

DOD joint command awards training pact

The Joint Forces Command has awarded Anteon International Corp. a $28.9 million contract to design the Joint Advanced Training Technology Laboratory.

Under the five-year deal, the Fairfax, Va., company will come up with the plans for the lab and then run it for the command. The lab will evaluate, refine and certify training standards and technologies for the Global Joint Training Infrastructure.

As part of the work, Anteon also will help the Defense Department figure out how to resolve joint training shortfalls. The command lab wants to create a training environment for use across the military services and that closely mirrors the conditions and requirements for a live exercise.

The lab is IT-laden, relying on modeling and simulation, joint command and control and intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance systems, IT security, database design, data collection and knowledge management systems.
