US Army award $128 million training contract to Northrop Grumman

Northrop Grumman will continue to provide support services to the Mission Command Training Center (MCTC) as part of a $128 million contract renewal, the US Army has confirmed.

The reappointment will see Northrop Grumman support a brand new programme, known as Mission Training Complex Contractor Support or MTCCS – III Corps, designed to provide mission command training across a host of US Army land operations taking place in the contemporary battlespace.

Northrop Grumman will provide live, virtual, constructive simulation-driven exercises, game-based training, mission staff training and technical support for the duration of the contract.

“We value the partnership we’ve built with the army through MCTC over the years, and are excited to continue supporting them with innovative and transformative live, virtual and constructive solutions that help prepare our warfighters with immersive training,” said Cathie Gridley, Vice President and General Manager of the Advanced Defense Systems Division at Northrop Grumman.

To date, Northrop Grumman has supported the MCTC over a 16 year period. The facility is located at Fort Hood, Texas, with four bespoke sites at Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort Carson, Colorado; Fort Riley, Kansas and Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Across these four locations the company delivers mission command training to more than 70,000 service members annually.
