The U.S. Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems has awarded Saab the Force on Force Training Systems - Next (FoFTS-Next) the Single Award Task Order Contract (SATOC). The contract has a potential value of USD 127.9 million.

The FoFTS-Next SATOC will include U.S. Marine Corps Training Instrumentation Systems (MCTIS) equipment, logistics, and training exercise support.

Through this framework agreement with future task orders exercised, Saab will provide a full turnkey live training capability to include equipment deliveries for individual Marine weapons and vehicles, as well as logistics and maintenance support and training exercise support at all major U.S. Marine Corps installations worldwide.

“Ensuring the readiness of our Armed Forces is the foundation of all Saab training systems,” said Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab in the U.S. “The Saab Live MCTIS Training System is a proven solution that will provide interoperability training to prepare our U.S. Marines for combat effectiveness across multi-domain operations.”

The RAF and UK defence company QinetiQ recently conducted the first live weaponry ‘swing-role’ mission on the range at MoD Aberporth. Read more about it here.

The Saab next-generation Live MCTIS Training System will replace the U.S. Marine Corps’ current Instrumentation and Tactical Engagement Simulation System (ITESS) equipment.
