AT&T lands Army deals

The Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation has awarded two contracts to AT&T Government Solutions to develop battlefield training systems.

The two contracts could be worth up to $134 million over 42 months, according to AT&T officials.

Under the One Tactical Engagement Simulation System (OneTESS) contract, AT&T personnel will develop a force-on-force and force-on-target war game system. OneTESS is intended to replace current systems to enable the Army to train soldiers more effectively. It is worth $74.1 million.

Lockheed Martin Corp.'s Simulation, Training and Support division awarded the second contract on the Army's behalf. Under it, AT&T will supply the communications infrastructure piece of the National Training Center Objective Instrumentation System, valued at up to $60 million.

As a subcontractor to Lockheed, AT&T will design, develop and implement a networking infrastructure for the Army's National Training Center in Fort Irwin, Calif. The voice, data and video network will enable trainers to create a simulated battlefield environment.
