ECS has won a follow-on task order on the Enterprise Training Services Contract (ETSC) multi-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract. Originally awarded in 2018, this $2.4 billion contract supports performance into 2025 and provides for education, training, and knowledge-based services in support of the U.S. Army and its Security Cooperation mission. Richard A. Madrid, Jr., ECS Vice President of Global Services and ETSC Program Manager, will lead the new task order.
Awarded by the Army Contracting Command-Orlando (ACC-O) for the U.S. Army Program Executive Office Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO-STRI), this task order, Foreign Military Sales (FMS) – Aviation Simulation Instructor/Operator (I/O) Support, provides Aviation Simulation I/Os to support Flight Simulator Training on two separate training platforms: the AH-64 Apache Longbow Crew Trainer, which provides full-mission simulator training capability, and the CH-47F Chinook Transportable Flight Proficiency Simulators, which provides initial and proficiency training of pilots, instructor pilots, and maintenance test pilots. In addition, it also provides skills required to successfully perform mission requirements and bolster U.S. foreign relations and national security objectives. Training for this task order is conducted outside the continental United States (OCONUS) in Indonesia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and potentially South Korea. This new award builds upon the predecessor contract for a similar effort which was also awarded to and implemented by ECS over the past three years.
Waymon Armstrong, CEO of Engineering & Computer Simulations, states: “While our roots are in technology, we will continue to integrate these skills with global training solutions, all of which help to prepare our soldiers for their next missions. It’s an honor to serve those who serve our country, and these exciting new projects allow ECS to evolve and innovate as we enter our 25th year.”
Madrid adds: “This ETSC task order supports training their soldiers while allowing them to also hone their operational skills by using full-scale, motion and visual simulation platforms for helicopter training.”
