Boeing Subsidiary Tapestry Solutions to Conduct US Army Training in Europe
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 18, 2011 - Boeing [NYSE: BA]
today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Tapestry Solutions
was selected by the Department of Defense (DOD) to conduct training
exercises for the U.S. Army in Europe under the Joint Multinational
Simulation Center's Battle Staff Training contract.
Tapestry was awarded a five-year, $59 million contract to
design, plan and conduct exercises ranging from Army unit-level
activities to large-scale events involving multinational forces,
such as the European Command's annual Austere Challenge. Tapestry,
as prime contractor, leads a team that includes SAIC of McLean,
Va., and Capstone Corp. and Metro Productions, both of Alexandria,
"While the Tapestry team has broad experiences across the
training domain, this contract gives us a focused opportunity to
demonstrate leadership and continued quality service as we help the
DOD evolve the live, virtual and constructive training domains
while addressing today's threats and fiscal realities," said Sam
DeFord, Tapestry CEO and president.
The contract calls for the Tapestry team to provide support to
the Joint Multinational Simulation Center in Grafenwohr, Germany,
and to its satellites in Kaiserslautern, Germany, and Vicenza,
Italy. Tapestry also will support the Joint Multinational Readiness
Center in Hohenfels, Germany, as that center prepares U.S. and
multinational brigade combat teams for missions under the U.S.
Army's Combat Training Center program. In addition, Tapestry will
supply and coordinate training capability for the Joint
Multinational Training Command's Multinational Mission Command
Training program as part of United States European Command's
(USEUCOM) engagement plan with countries across the European Area
of Operational Responsibility.
