Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced that it has been awarded a contract for the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division's (NAWCTSD) Training Data Products Contract (TDPC), a Multiple Award Contract (MAC). The TDPC, inclusive of all awarded contracts and ordering periods, has a total value of $780 million and an eight-year ordering period.
This multiple award contract was designed to provide the Naval Air Systems Command Team with a streamlined, quick reaction vehicle for the acquisition and life cycle support of Training Data Products (TDP) for its many customers across the U.S. Navy, Department of Homeland Security and Foreign Military Sales. Based on application of the formal Instructional Systems Development (ISD) process, the TDPC scope supports multiple functional areas aligned to all phases of the ISD process.
Kratos' award supports competing for task orders across all TDPC functional areas, including (1) Analysis, Design and Evaluation; (2) Development, Production and Implementation; and (3) Sustainment. The TDPC will accommodate self-paced training, group-paced training, dual-purpose training, blended training, learner assessments, and performance support systems. The scope of the TDPC MAC is intended to support training system ISD requirements of Naval Air Systems Command's Aviation Training Systems Program Office, as well as the four NAWCTSD Program Directorates: Aviation, Surface, Undersea, and Cross-Warfare/International.
"Kratos brings a highly experienced team with proven knowledge and demonstrated execution ability across the full spectrum of training development," said Dan Dunaway, Senior Vice President of Kratos Training Solutions. "Kratos has an extensive track record of providing advanced training solutions to the U.S. Navy as well as the other uniformed services. We look forward to applying this knowledge and experience to developing the next generation of training solutions to enhance the readiness and performance of our nation's Warfighters."
"This is a key contract vehicle for the Navy and other armed services and provides new opportunity for our training solutions across the Navy's aviation, surface, undersea, and cross-warfare domains," said Phil Carrai, President of Kratos Technology and Training Solutions. "This award builds on our other recent training-focused IDIQ awards, including NTPS and TSC III, placing Kratos in a dynamic position both to reach new customers and better serve our existing clients."
