The US Marine Corps has awarded Saab a contract worth up to $127.9 million for work on the Force on Force Training Systems – Next (FoFTS-Next).
The FoFTS-Next SATOC will include US Marine Corps training instrumentation systems (MCTIS) equipment, logistics, and training exercise support.
The framework agreement will see Saab provide a live training capability to include equipment deliveries for individual marine weapons and vehicles, as well as logistics and maintenance support and training exercise support at all major US Marine Corps installations worldwide.
“Ensuring the readiness of our armed forces is the foundation of all Saab training systems. The Saab Live MCTIS training system is a proven solution that will provide interoperability training to prepare our US Marines for combat effectiveness across multi-domain operations,” said Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab in the US.
Live MCTIS will replace the service’s current Instrumentation and Tactical Engagement Simulation System (ITESS) equipment.
