FAIRFAX, Va. –- General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a contract for Constructive Training Systems support by the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

The total potential value of this single-award, five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract is $387 million if all options are exercised. The initial award value is $56 million for the base year.

Under the contract, General Dynamics will provide technical, management and professional engineering support services for the procurement and fielding of Constructive Training Systems (CTS).
