Anteon International Corporation, an information technology and systems engineering and integration company, has announced that it has received three amendments to its US Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM) contract to support combat training range instrumentation programs.
The estimated value of the contract amendments is $9.3 million.
Under these amendments, Anteon will design and develop a prototype of the Digital Multi-Purpose Range Complex (DPMRC) located at Fort Hood, Texas. The DPMRC is being developed to meet US Army current and future combat training, qualification requirements.
In addition, Anteon will provide instrumentation support for the Military Operations on Urban Terrain site at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
These instrumented sites are said to replicate real-life urban battlefield environments as they exist in third-world countries.
Anteon developed STRICOM’s first site at Fort Polk, Louisiana, a facility containing more than 3 million feet of fibre optic cable connected to a centralised, integrated control system.
