Northrop Grumman Corp. has won a five-year, $100 million contract to support training at Fort Carson and five other military posts around the country.

The U.S. Army contract is part of the III Corps Mission Command Training Center and was awarded under the operations planning, training and resource support services contract. Northrop will provide training for Army mission command systems, simulation-driven staff training exercises and immersive training for platoon and company convoy and counter-IED operations.

The contract includes one base year and four option years.

“We’ve proudly supported the MCTC program for more than a decade,” said Greg Schmidt, vice president and general manager, Northrop Grumman’s Training Solutions division. “Our training is based on the latest tactics, techniques and procedures derived from lessons learned in theater and enables complete mission readiness so when a warfighter reaches the battlefield, they feel like they’ve already been there.”

Northrop Grumman has provided support to the MCTC at Fort Hood and Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort Carson; Fort Sill, Okla.; Fort Riley, Kan.; and Fort Knox, Ky., since 2001.
