Raytheon secured a potential $159M contract to support large-scale, live training exercises for the U.S. Army at the branch's Joint Multinational Readiness Center located in Hohenfels, Germany, Raytheon announced Tuesday.
The company developed the Mobile Instrumentation System technology enabling the distributed training. The company also provides a range of services at JMRC including training area instrumentation, after action reviews and battlefield effects to increase training realism. The training will also be virtually connected to forces across Europe.
"Raytheon's technology-enabled training means that location is no longer a restriction to multinational forces training together," said Bob Williams, vice president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Data from allied units, located in their home countries, is sent back to Germany allowing leaders to track training from anywhere."
