A team led by The Boeing Company has been selected to support
U.S. Navy aviation training systems under the FY2000 Navy Training Systems Contract valued at up to $325 million.
Through the program, Boeing Military Aerospace Support and its partners will provide fast-response solutions to Navy requirements to develop new training systems, modify and upgrade existing systems, and provide ancillary services such as analysis, documentation and contractor logistic support.
The Boeing-led team includes the Flight Simulation and Training business unit (formerly Reflectone) of BAE Systems, Tampa, Fla.; and American Systems Corporation (ACS), Chantilly, Va. The Flight Simulation and Training business unit of BAE Systems offers expertise in a range of simulation products and services for fixed-and rotary-wing platforms, and ASC brings valuable experience in part-task and computer trainers.
"Our team members complement the vast experience in developing and supporting innovative, affordable military training systems that exists within The Boeing Company," said Keith Hertzenberg, vice president of Logistics Support Systems, part of Boeing Military Aerospace Support.
"The FY2000 Training Systems Contract allows the Navy to meet its training systems requirements through a much shorter contracting cycle time and with reduced risk," Hertzenberg said. "We embrace this type of innovative acquisition approach as we continue to seek ways to lower the cost of ownership for our customers."
Contractors for two additional portions of the FY2000 Training Systems Contract - Lot 2 for advanced distributed learning and Lot 3 for trainer relocations, are expected to be selected in the next few months. Total values of those two lots are $125 million and $50 million, respectively.
The FY2000 Training Systems Contract Lot 1 is a multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract vehicle with a $325 million cost cap over eight years.
By focusing its training and support systems, maintenance and modification, and logistics support services competencies in the Military Aerospace Support business, Boeing is the only major airframe manufacturer with an integrated organization structured to provide total life-cycle customer support.
