Engility wins $41 million Marine Corps global command and control system task order
Engility Holdings, Inc. of Chantilly, VA announced on May 24 that the firm won a $41 million SeaPort-e task order to provide on-site command and control expertise, training and integrated logistics support to the U.S. Marine Corps’ core command and control programs. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic awarded Engility the Global Command and Control System Tactical Combat Operations/Joint Tactical Common Operational Picture Workstation Sustainment Support contract on April 26.
“Our people are embedded with Marine units worldwide,” said Scott Whatmough, senior vice president of Engility’s Defense and Security Group. “Engility’s on-site command and control expertise and innovative training solutions help ensure our armed forces are always mission ready.”
By coupling embedded command and control experts with its instructional design and delivery team, Engility can rapidly deliver critical services. The task order includes delivering the Immersive Training Environment. Inside the ITE, Marines train on virtual systems inside a simulated environment. This environment can be accessed anywhere, including home stations, and it doesn’t require large training facilities or transportation. It replicates the live systems Marines will use in actual missions, giving them on-demand, hands-on training. The ITE can be integrated across a spectrum of training platforms, from a media-rich classroom presentation to an individual distance learning system.
