General Dynamics details CPM Plus contract
General Dynamics Mission Systems has detailed its new contract for the US Army’s Consolidated Product Line Management Plus (CPM Plus) programme.
The CPM Plus contract is an eight year, single-award, IDIQ cost-plus fixed-fee/firm-fixed price contract with a ceiling of $883 million.
The contract aims to improve the army’s individual and collective expeditionary training systems at unit home stations and major combat training centres, including military operations on urban terrain training sites, live fire and digital ranges and additional training facilities located worldwide.
General Dynamics will focus primarily on the extensive Live Training Transformation (LT2) product line, the common training instrumentation architecture, and the live training engagement composition for the project manager for soldier training portfolio.
The operational focus will be implemented through an agile, capabilities-based organisation to evolve the LT2 Family of Training Systems, with the goal of reducing total ownership cost and operational complexity, increasing technology agility and concurrency, and enabling enhanced soldier training effectiveness.
