"This is one more example of our capabilities aligning with critical mission needs and ensuring the ANG is able to train their warfighters. We are proud to be able to deliver our technical expertise to the ANG—we know what’s at stake," Smith said.

Under the terms of the five-year contract, American Systems will establish a training system support center that will provide program management, systems engineering, software development and test, hardware design and cybersecurity. 

The center will also provide system upgrades and enhancements, distributed mission operations, help desk support, depot and spares management and contractor logistics support. 

American Systems added that it will provide on-site support to the 17 AAJTS device sites in the continental United States.
