NORFOLK, Virginia — L3 Integrated Maritime Systems has been awarded a $76 million contract to support U.S. Navy shipboard integrated training systems and provide instruction, engineering, systems integration and life-cycle support for the Battle Force Tactical Trainer (BFTT) family of training devices.

BFTT allows coordinated stimulation and simulation of shipboard combat systems to facilitate Navy team training. This training helps Sailors conduct realistic joint warfare drills across the spectrum of armed conflict and enables unit-level team training and battle group fleet synthetic exercises.

“We are pleased to continue to support the U.S. Navy’s combat systems training to maintain proficiency and mission readiness,” said Bill Toti, president of L3 Integrated. “We are dedicated to providing the best training and program support to the Navy’s afloat training groups and our country’s frontline warfighters.”

BFTT delivers training to sailors while aboard their ships in the environment in which they will fight. It assists fleet commanding officers in generating exercises to prepare for expected missions and provides playback of their crew’s performance for continuous improvement. L3 provides instruction and training support at all major Navy ports around the world and Aegis ashore locations.
