The Army Contracting Agency has awarded Science Applications International Corp. a contract to operate and maintain the Battle Command Training Center at Fort Lewis, Wash.
The $39.8 million contract has a nine-month base period and four one-year options.
SAIC's team, which includes Cubic Applications Inc., will provide live, virtual and constructive simulation-based battle command training to I Corps Stryker Brigades preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The team will provide mission support activities to deployed units through a combination of voice and video-teleconferencing technology. The team also will assist in the identification and distribution of lessons learned from units both in the field and returning from overseas.
'[The award] complements our portfolio of training and simulation capabilities and lets us leverage our full range of solutions in support of the warfighter,' said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Analysis, Simulations, Systems Engineering and Training Business Unit.
