CGI Federal has secured a $34.2m contract from the US Army Training and Doctrine Command Intelligence Directorate (TRADOC G2) to help meet the challenges of complex and evolving threat environments.

This contract is the exercise of a year-one option for operational environment (OE) core functions, and is part of a $124m, five-year contract that was awarded to CGI in 2015.

The OE aims to prepare army units to meet traditional military, asymmetric and hybrid threats by providing data, training scenarios and threat replication.

"TRADOC G2 has recognised our years of experience, subject matter expertise and deep commitment to its mission success."

CGI senior vice-president Pat Dougherty said: "We are delighted that TRADOC G2 has recognised our years of experience, subject matter expertise and deep commitment to its mission success."

Under the terms of the contract, CGI will deliver publication-ready region and country-specific OE studies for operational planning, exercise and mission rehearsal, as well as individual / staff training for units.

The US Army will also receive scenario development tools, a force-wide data repository, classroom-ready instruction, mobile training team augmentation, and combat training centre support.

Army intelligence leaders, staff and units will be able to train using high-fidelity environments, design tools and CGI-enabled products.

Serving as the prime contractor, CGI has so far helped TRADOC G2 to reduce costs, speed-up project delivery schedules and enhance project quality, while providing the tools and dashboards needed to improve leadership visibility and control.
