Raytheon to support training at US Army JMRC
Raytheon will support training at the US Army's Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) located in Hohenfels, Germany, under a contract announced on 30 April.
The contract, valued up to $159 million, will see the company support large-scale, live training exercises for personnel located at the centre, and virtually connected forces across Europe.
Raytheon provides a range of services at the JMRC, including training area instrumentation, after action reviews and battlefield effects to increase training realism. Its Mobile Instrumentation System technology enables the distributed training.
Bob Williams, vice president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, said: ‘Raytheon's technology-enabled training means that location is no longer a restriction to multinational forces training together. Data from allied units, located in their home countries, is sent back to Germany allowing leaders to track training from anywhere.’
