Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has been awarded a contract ceiling increase to continue its support of software engineering, development and programming activities for the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT).

Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has been awarded a contract ceiling increase to continue its support of software engineering, development and programming activities for the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT).

The USASMDC/ARSTRAT has exercised an option to raise the ceiling value of the company's existing contract by an additional $9m, and to extend the performance period until March 2015.

"The increased ceiling value, along with the extended period of performance, is a true testament to the technical competence of our staff and the government's trust in CTC to deliver innovative solutions."

CTC currently provides software engineering, development and programming activities in support of USASMDC/ARSTRAT in missions related to the exportable combat-training centres (E-CTC) programme, the advanced distributed learning (ADL) programme and the reactive information-propagation planning for life-like exercises (RIPPLE).

CTC programme manager Dr Kamal Gella said the company has been a trusted partner since 2008.

"From July 2013 through March 2014, USASMDC/ARSTRAT awarded $2.2m to CTC," Gella said.

"The latest exercised option gives us the opportunity to further advance our client's mission of force modernisation through evolving training technologies."

CTC president and chief executive officer Edward Sheehan said: "The increased ceiling value, along with the extended period of performance, is a true testament to the technical competence of our staff and the government's trust in CTC to deliver innovative solutions."

To date, CTC has received more than $30m from the USASMDC/ARSTRAT since the initial contract award in 2008.

CTC supports the research, scientific study and experimentation directed toward increasing knowledge, understanding, development, analysis and validation of concepts, technologies, systems and subsystems.

Additional support areas include the development of operational concepts and tactics to help enhance existing or develop new soldier capabilities, which may include tools and systems for training and decision support systems.
