Saab Awarded $122M Modification on USMC Live Training System Contract; Erik Smith Quoted

Saab has secured a $122 million modification to a contract with the U.S. Marine Corps for the production and delivery of force-on-force training systems.

The modification includes a $54 million order booked in 2021 and options that would raise the potential value of the FoFTS-Next contract to $248 million, Saab said Wednesday.

USMC chose the Swedish aerospace and defense contractor’s U.S. subsidiary to manufacture instrumentation equipment along with logistics and exercise support services as part of a $127.9 million initial FoFTS-Next award announced in June last year.

The branch aims to deploy a land-based capability to accommodate a maximum of 10 battalion training sets and establish support operations at multiple installations.

Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab Inc., said the Marine Corps Training Instrumentation Systems capability offers a realistic environment for service personnel to practice how to carry out battlefield tactics, procedures and techniques.
