ECS announced on Tuesday that the company has been awarded a three-year, $19M contract firm-fixed price contract to support the Marine Sierra Hotel Aviation Readiness Program.

M-SHARP is a web-based training management program that supports all Marine Aviation Operational and Headquarters units with real-time forecasting, scheduling, execution, and reporting to achieve and maintain combat readiness. The program is managed by the United States Marine Corps Training and Education Command Aviation Standards Branch.

“ECS has supported similar systems for the USMC for the past 16 years,” said George Wilson, president of ECS and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient. “This award positions us as the leader in both ground and aviation training management systems for the Marine Corps.”

ECS will implement new and enhanced functionality to M-SHARP, enabling more simulator and ground-unit utilization, implementing a Scaled Agile Framework for software development, increasing functionality on multiplatform-based systems, and creating a more comprehensive security through redundant data storage and secure help-desk functionality.

“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with the U.S. Marine Corps,” said Luis “CC” ColonCastro, ECS vice president of mission systems. “Training management is key to mission readiness. M-SHARP provides Marines with the critical, comprehensive marine aviation training they need to protect the nation.”
