Lockheed Martin will produce a Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) Reconfigurable Vehicle Simulator and the Reconfigurable Vehicle Tactical Trainer (RVTT/CCTT-RVS) for the U.S. Army, providing soldiers with the latest skills to defeat adaptive and intelligent adversaries. The initial one-year contract valued at $37 million has three options that, if exercised, could bring the total contract value to $147 million. The first-generation Virtual Combat Convoy Trainer provided convoy training for drivers, gunners, communicators, and decision makers—each according to the unique requirements of their position, tactical circumstances, and unit or service standard operating procedure. CCTT-RVS will also provide convoy training on a wide variety of wheeled vehicles, including multiple variants of the High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle and Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck.
