I/ITSEC 2015: L-3 Link Receives Award to Compete on USAF TSA III Contract

L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) has been awarded a position to compete under the USAF Training Systems Acquisition (TSA) III contract. L-3 is one of 12 large company contractors to compete for future TSA III task orders over the next 10 years, which, collectively, could have a potential value of $20.9 billion.

Under TSA III task orders, L-3 Link would provide analysis, design, development, production, installation, integration, test, and sustainment support for USAF training configurations encompassing complex aircrew, maintenance and system-specific training systems. These task orders will support training on fighter, bomber, cargo, air tanker, unmanned aerial, and special operations fixed- and rotary-wing platforms. Training will focus on aircraft operations, weapons, navigation, and C2 for both individual and aircrew events, ranging from single aircraft to large-scale, composite force mission rehearsal training. A primary goal under TSA III task orders will be to significantly reduce acquisition lead times on active Air Force, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard and Foreign Military Sales training and sustainment programs.

Under the service’s current TSA II contract, we have had the privilege of providing the USAF with advanced training solutions on various programmes, including F-16 Aircrew Training Devices, the PREDATOR Mission Aircrew Training System and the T-1A Ground-Based Training System,” said Lenny Genna, President of L-3 Link. “We made substantial investments in new technologies and methods of training, fielding these advancements on TSA II programmes that have resulted in enhanced training capabilities for the service. Our commitment is stronger than ever to continue to make strategic investments in next-generation solutions that will enable the USAF to procure, in a streamlined process, low-risk, technically advanced solutions that deliver immediate benefits to pilots, aircrews and maintenance professionals.”
