HERNDON, Va., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of the Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command Center-Fort Eustis has given Northrop a training and technical services contract.

The award is in support of the U.S. Army Mission Command Training Program.

The $388.4 million cost-plus-award fee contract includes a one-year base performance period and four option years. Work will be performed at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and training facilities worldwide.

"For more than 20 years, Northrop Grumman has provided the U.S. Army with the most realistic and challenging training support based upon lessons learned from the front lines," said Tom Vice, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Technical Services.

"We look forward to continuing to provide best-value, world-class support to this critical program that is so vital to our nation's warfighters."

The Northrop Grumman team provides critical training support based on real world threat scenarios to U.S. Army and allied commanders and staffs from battalion through corps level. No U.S. Army brigade since Operation Desert Shield has deployed into a combat theater without going through an MCTP exercise.

"We are excited to continue our legacy of superior performance for the MCTP customer," said Greg Schmidt, vice president and general manager, Northrop Grumman Technical Service's Training Solutions Division.

"The team looks forward to providing high-quality, innovative training solutions to the U.S. Army for current and future Mission Command requirements."
