Engility Holdings has been awarded a $16 million contract to deliver advanced training solutions and embedded advisory support to the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic selected Engility to support and train warfighters on USMC command and control systems worldwide.

Engility will develop and deliver training support on newly-fielded equipment and software. Additionally, the company will develop virtual-world 3D immersive training environments to host USMC training suitable for use in a media-rich classroom or in a mobile app. Engility will also supply Command Post Systems Advisors, who will be embed with the Marine Expeditionary Force and major supporting commands. These advisors will support information management officers, who are responsible for the deployment and use of command and control systems within their respective units.

The third quarter cost-plus-fixed-fee win represents a re-compete award with an expanded level of effort for the multiple programs supported by Engility. The award is for one year with a one-year option.
