HII’s Mission Technologies division has been awarded a Mobility Air Force Distributed Mission Operations (MAF DMO) task order to support Air Mobility Command’s MAF DMO operations and integration to enable persistent, distributed training of aircrews worldwide.
The US Air Force’s Training Systems Acquisition III contract is valued at $79 million, including a base period and five one-year options.
HII’s Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) capabilities — including network engineering, cybersecurity, standards development and logistics — will support a wide range of joint and combined exercises.
The company will operate and maintain the Distributed Training Center and the Distributed Training Center Network to support global Aircrew Training Systems. The work will serve vital network connectivity and interoperability between Air Force major commands.
“Realistic training environments are critical to preparing warfighters for mission success,” said Andy Green, president of Mission Technologies. “Our dedicated team is thrilled to extend our more than 20 years of expertise delivering LVC solutions and network operations across defense and coalition forces.”
“Optimal network performance to support warfighter training is vital to ensure the accuracy and safety of the mission,” said Glenn Goodman, president of Mission Technologies’ LVC Solutions business group. “Our engineers are industry experts in the design, development and operations of cyber-secure, large-scale distributed training architectures, and we look forward to supporting successful training operations worldwide.”
