US Army Issues USD 415 Million Contract for Training Programme

US: A General Dynamics-led team has been awarded the Live Training Transformation (LT2) Consolidated Product-line Management (CPM) Next contract by the US Army. With this award, the General Dynamics team will continue managing the Army's LT2 live training systems that include nearly 300 training ranges worldwide, with training that scales from individual soldiers to brigades participating in live force-on-force and force-on-target training. The CPM Next award is a five-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with a total potential value of USD 415 million.

The LT2 CPM Next contract will help the Army continue to reduce the costs and complexity associated with maintaining its diverse portfolio of training systems. The team will also rapidly integrate new training capabilities, directly supporting a soldier's ability to be ready for operations in today's complex mission environment. A provision in the contract encourages other US Department of Defense organisations and US Department of Homeland Security agencies to participate in the LT2 Product Line to create and manage their training products for cost-savings and overall training efficiencies.
