Ravenswood Solutions won a $2.2-million contract from the U.S. Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command for communications and test support services during the U.S. Army Operational Test Command’s (USAOTC) review of the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV).
Ravenswood will provide support via its proprietary Mobile Ground Truth System (known to DOD clients as FlexTrain). FlexTrain is a rapidly deployable, Global Positioning System (GPS)-based instrumentation system that tracks vehicles, units and individual participants during training or testing exercises.
USAOTC will conduct a Limited User Test (LUT) of the AMPV – a flexible vehicle designed to replace the Vietnam War-era M113 family of vehicles. Testing of the vehicle is underway at Fort Hood, Texas, and will continue through Fall of 2018.
This contract represents the second time Ravenswood was selected to deliver instrumentation and test services to USAOTC. In early 2018, Ravenswood supported the Multi-Service Operational Test & Evaluation (MOT&E) of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program.
