Army National Guard
The U.S. Army National Guard is ramping up training opportunities for troops to fight back against the deadliest weapon in war zones-the improvised explosive device (IED). With an ultimate goal of increasing practice while decreasing travel costs, the guard is funding dedicated training lanes across the United States to give soldiers the skills they need to stay safe in any situation.
Raydon Corporation, Daytona Beach, Florida, was recently awarded a more than $15 million contract to provide 21 virtual combat operations trainers upgraded from version 1.1 to version 3.1. The National Guard Bureau Operational Contracting Center, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity.
