FAIRFAX, VA., 06/07/2006 -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has been awarded a $176 million contract to provide learning management services for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
Dubbed “Nighthawk” by the Lockheed Martin team, the contract is a follow-on to the NGA College Consolidated Training & Services Contract, which provides training and education via the National Geospatial-Intelligence College to more than 16,000 students each year.
Nighthawk is a combination of instructor-led, web-based and simulation training that will provide NGA employees, Department of Defense staff, and members of the Intelligence Community with mission-essential technical skills, systems training, and leadership and intelligence professional education. Work on the program, which consists of a one-year base contract with four option years, began June 1.
“Nighthawk will be the transformational vehicle for NGA to achieve their vision of career-long learning for superior job performance,” said Mike Thomas, vice president and general manager, Geospatial-Intelligence Solutions for Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems & Solutions (IS&S). “The Lockheed Martin team, drawing from more than 10 years experience with NGA and its predecessor organizations, will drive integration and optimization of services through technology insertion and business process re-engineering.”
The primary locations of the Nighthawk program will be at customer locations in Bethesda, Md.; Fort Belvoir, Va.; Washington Navy Yard, Washington, D.C.; and St Louis, Mo.; with additional training performed at other sites worldwide.
