FREMONT, Calif. Ravenswood Solutions won a $1.3 million contract in support of the U.S. Army Joint Modernization Command [JMC -- a subordinate of the larger Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC)] -- for communications support services during a Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) to take place this fall at Fort Bliss, Texas, and the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.
Under the contract, Ravenswood will supply the Army with its proprietary Mobile Ground Truth System (known to DoD clients as FlexTrain), which is a rapidly deployable, GPS-based instrumentation system that tracks vehicles, units, and individual participants during training or testing exercises.
The system presents users with real-time casualty assessment, a record of the factors that cause changes in troop capabilities, and a common operating picture that shows both live and constructive elements.
