TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 29, 2019 — ECS has received a three-year, $19M contract from the U.S. Marine Corps to upgrade the software of a marine aviation training management platform in an effort to advance combat readiness, ExecutiveBiz reported Aug. 20.

The USMC Training and Education Command’s aviation standards branch operates the Marine Sierra Hotel Aviation Readiness Program, to which ECS will integrate improved functionalities to support ground unit and simulator deployment, the company said Aug. 20.

Under the firm-fixed-price contract, ECS will also introduce a scaled agile framework, or SAFe, to enhance security and boost the program’s performance when used on different platforms.

"Training management is key to mission readiness. M-SHARP provides Marines with the critical, comprehensive marine aviation training they need to protect the nation," said Luis ColonCastro, vice president at ECS’ mission systems division.

"This award positions us as the leader in both ground and aviation training management systems for the Marine Corps," added George Wilson, president at ECS and a two-time Wash100 winner.
