Boeing company Tapestry Solutions has been awarded a contract to provide mission command training support services for the US Army’s 7th Army Training Command.
Valued at $58m, the contract requires the company to continue to support live, virtual and constructive training exercises at the Joint Multinational Simulation Center (JMSC) in Grafenwoehr, Germany.
Said to be the army’s largest overseas training command, the 7th Army Training Command is responsible for providing realistic, tailor-made training solutions to US, Nato and partner nations throughout Europe, Africa and beyond.
Tapestry Solutions business development director René Burgess said: "We are committed to continued excellence in providing Mission Command Training support to the US Army and fostering lasting relationships with our customers.
"Tapestry is proud to support the army's mission to ensure the highest level of readiness for our forces – today and well into the future."
As part of the contract, the company will also support JMSC’s satellites in Kaiserslautern, Germany, and Vicenza, Italy; the Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) in Hohenfels, Germany; and Theater Security Cooperation exercises throughout Nato.
Tapestry will serve as the prime contractor and will lead a team comprising Capstone, Metro Productions and Visual Awareness Technology & Consulting.
It will provide overall management along with planning and execution of training exercises throughout the US Army Europe's area of responsibility.
Tapestry has supported US and allied training exercises throughout Europe since 2011, under the JMSC Battle Simulation Training (BST) contract.
