Logicon Wins U.S. Army Contracts for STRICOM Constructive Simulation, Test-Instrumentation Domains

Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Logicon Inc.

    HERNDON, Va., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Logicon Inc., a Northrop Grumman
 Corporation (NYSE:   NOC) company, has received awards for two domains of the
 U.S. Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command's (STRICOM) Omnibus
 Contract (STOC).
     Logicon awards were in the constructive simulation and
 test-instrumentation domains, two of STRICOM's four business areas.  STOC is
 an eight-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract with a
 total program value of $4 billion to all contractors.
     The constructive simulation domain covers systems that run war games and
 automated simulations using large-scale, complex computer-driven models.
 These systems simulate large groups such as battalions, brigades and
 divisions.  The test-instrumentation domain covers systems used to conduct
 development and operational testing of materiel systems and weapons systems
 used in training and simulation exercises.
     "We recognized that STRICOM's shift to a large, omnibus, ID/IQ, training
 and simulation contract was an opportunity for us to bring Northrop Grumman's
 and Logicon's total capabilities to bear on a host of STRICOM challenges,"
 said Dr. Charles Stebbins, vice president, Space and Technology Operations,
 Logicon.  "Our management approach will facilitate system development and
 integration of technology for application to Army modeling and simulation
 across all domains."
     Logicon, the information technology sector of Northrop Grumman, will be
 the lead contractor and provide development, testing and operational support
 spanning all aspects of the modeling and simulation life cycle.
     "We have the experience, the talent, the technology, and more importantly,
 a keen understanding of STRICOM's needs which will allow us to provide options
 that bring world-class training to the warfighter," said Frank Simpkins,
 program manager, Logicon.
     Logicon's Technology Solutions unit, headquartered in Herndon, will begin
 work on the program in late July 2001 in Orlando, Fla., with additional
 support in Huntsville, Ala., and other locations.  Other members of the
 Logicon team include AEgis Technologies, Amtech and Cirrus Technologies Inc.,
 all of Huntsville; Global Net Federal Inc., McLean, Va.; Reliability
 Availability and Maintainability, Inc., El Paso, Tex.; Sytex, Inc.,
 Doylestown, Pa.; the University of Central Florida, Orlando, Fla.; and the
 University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, N.M.
     Logicon, headquartered in Herndon, is a leader in advanced information
 technologies, products, systems and services.  Areas of expertise include
 command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and
 reconnaissance (C4ISR); enterprise hardware and software solutions;
 information systems; training and simulation; science and technology; base and
 range support; and commercial information services.
