Team Paladin, comprised of QinetiQ, KBR and PA Consulting, will compete for the British Army’s upcoming Collective Training Transformation Program (CTTP).
CTTP is designed to deliver an integrated, expeditionary and digitalized Future Collective Training System (FCTS), allowing the Army to train globally where and when it needs to. The system will be underpinned by a mutually beneficial relationship with a strategic training partner from industry.
By drawing on the team’s collective expertise and experience in delivering programs of global scale and complexity, designing and integrating collective training capability, and implementing digital and data-driven transformative solutions for defense customers, Team Paladin is looking to bring together the best of industry to transform the British Army’s collective training enterprise, improve the experience of soldiers and commanders, and adapt training at the speed of relevance to address global demands.
“Building a long-term trusted relationship with the British Army starts with forming a strong, cohesive industry team that combines the right capabilities, collaborative behaviors and long-term commitment to the program,” said Christina Balis, Global Campaign Director for Training & Mission Rehearsal at QinetiQ. “We are delighted to be joining forces with KBR and PA as we look to jointly build the future Army-Industry team that will deliver greater flexibility, adaptability and innovation in land collective training.”
“Alongside the British Army, KBR is proud to be developing the future of collective training by bringing the best capability to bear together with QinetiQ and PA,” said Geoff Maple, Strategic Development Director for the Land Environment at KBR. “In support of the British Army, our joint team will deliver the most collaborative solutions that industry can offer. Building on our joint global scale, experience of the Front Line, dedicated collective training and data-driven approaches, we will offer soldier-focused support to the future of the British Army’s collective training.”
“Supporting the ongoing modernization of defense is at the heart of PA’s commitment to securing a positive human future,” added Paul Finley, Public Sector Defense Lead for PA Consulting. “Collective training is a crucial element of ensuring military readiness to counter the threats of the future, and we are delighted to join QinetiQ and KBR to support modernization and transformation of collective training. We are excited by the opportunity to bring end-to-end innovation, a wealth of sector expertise and our disruptive digital and data capabilities, in support of the British Army’s vision of future collective training needs.”
The Strategic Training Partner for the program is expected to be in place in 2025. During the next two years, Team Paladin, in collaboration with broader industry, will refine and tailor its offering to meet the ever-evolving requirements of the British Army for a flexible and data-driven collective training capability.
