L-3 Communications' Electronic Systems unit has received a contract to support the US Air Force’s (USAF) Warfighter Readiness & Training programme.

L-3 Communications' Electronic Systems unit has received a contract to support the US Air Force’s (USAF) Warfighter Readiness & Training programme.

Under the seven-year contract, which was awarded after a re-competition process, the company will provide training solutions for the programme.

The L-3 team will also provide evaluation and validation of training approaches, including methods, tools, instrumentation and enterprise infrastructure for learning and performance.

"L-3’s research, engineering and development efforts will directly transition advanced technologies and improved training methods to the warfighter."

The Warfighter programme focuses on providing the Air Force with a wide range of research into advanced technologies to improve training effectiveness.

L-3 Electronic Systems president Steve Kantor said: “This award builds on L-3’s long-term involvement in the leading edge of research and development for warfighter training and represents a major re-compete win for L-3.

“The technology enhancements and training improvements developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory, in conjunction with the L-3 team, will ensure that advances in technologies provided to the US Air Force will continue to be the best, most innovative in the world.”

L-3 initially won the Warfighter programme in 1997 and will continue as prime contractor under an initial task order valued at $23.5m with a maximum ceiling value of $200m.

The company's Link Simulation & Training division will serve as the prime contractor on the programme.

L-3 Link Simulation & Training president Lenny Genna said: “L-3’s research, engineering and development efforts will directly transition advanced technologies and improved training methods to the warfighter.

“The research we undertake, with the support of our industry team, will positively impact US Air Force and joint training doctrine, in addition to enhancing the design of future training systems.”
