HII scores two tactical training systems deals with Naval Air Warfare Center
U.S. naval shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has secured two tactical training systems contracts with the Naval Air Warfare Center China Lake.
The first deal is a multiple-award, indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contract with a total ceiling valuer of $249 million for aircrew electronic warfare tactical training.
Likewise, the second deal is a multiple-award, IDIQ contract for tactical integrated threat/target training systems with a total ceiling value of $92 million.
Both contracts have a five-year continuous ordering period.
Under these contracts, HII will have the opportunity to bid on task orders to provide research, development, engineering, sustainment, upgrades, integration, testing and cybersecurity for the U.S. Navy’s tactical and electronic warfare threat systems and tactical threat systems.
“For more than 20 years, HII has been dedicated to the Navy’s training missions, providing expertise in Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) cutting edge software, modelling and simulation, engineering, systems integration, networking and virtual technology, as well as large-scale operations and maintenance,” said Glenn Goodman, president of LVC Solutions business group within HII’s Mission Technologies division.
“It is imperative our nation’s training environments provide real-world mission rehearsal support for our warfighters, and we look forward to continuing to provide the Navy with world-class support to the mission.”
According to the shipbuilder, HII is the prime contractor on the Navy Integrated Training Environment contract to combine operations of live training ranges with the virtual and constructive environment.
The company also provides F-15 fighter jet aircrew training for the U.S. Air National Guard and has recently completed the first-ever contractor-owned, contractor-operated aircrew training for U.S. Air Forces in Europe/Air Forces Africa.
Last week, HII informed that U.S. Navy’s Virginia-class submarine New Jersey (SSN 796) was launched into the James River at the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding division.
