WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army awarded New York-based L-3 Communications Holdings Inc. a $74.6 million contract to help train fighters in Europe.

The technical and management services division of L-3's Titan Group will offer simulation, training and exercise support for the 7th Army Training Command, L-3 said Monday.

Under the five-year contract, L-3 Titan Group will provide constructive simulation support to the Army's eight Battle Command Training Centers in Germany, Italy and other European areas.

L-3 Titan Group will also support, as-needed, battle simulation exercises in areas such as Partnership for Peace, Mission Rehearsals, NATO training and sustainment training of deployed units at remote locations in the European Command Area of Operations.

The focus of work to be performed under this effort will be the operation and use of computer-based battle simulation systems to support the training and exercise requirements of both active and reserve component commanders and their staffs at the platoon through senior command level.
