AITC was recently awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) in Orlando, Florida to support the Global Peace Operations Initiatives (GPOI)/Building Partnership Capability (BPC) efforts.  The GPOI/BPC program supports building the framework to furnish international customers with a wide range of support to fulfill United Nations (UN) peacekeeping requirements.  With the rapid rise in the number and complexity of peace operations since the 1990s, this has increased the demand for well-trained and equipped peacekeepers.

The primary objective is to assist partner country efforts to build sustainable, indigenous peacekeeping training capacity.   The NAWCTSD International Programs Directorate has been chartered by the Naval International Programs Office (NIPO) to support the development and execution of GPOI/BPC requirements for benefiting nations.

As part of the requirements, AITC will provide upgrades to infrastructure and solutions to training capability and classrooms worldwide, but within United States Government (USG) partner country locations.  Delivery Orders have already begun being released for designated countries within the Geographical Combatant Commands: Africa Command (AFRICOM), Central Command (CENTCOM), European Command (EUCOM), Indo-Pacific Command (INDO-PACOM), and Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) to perform delivery acceptance tasks, conduct inventory, and perform equipment procurement, configuration, integration and testing, as well as installation services.  Some of the solutions proposed can include, but are not limited to: Driving Simulators, Classroom Equipment, Multi-Media Language Labs, Language Software, Medical Training Environments and Equipment, Audio Visual and VTC Solutions, Field Radios and Antennas, Hand Held and Base Radio Upgrades, Smart Boards, Power solutions, Server and Desktop Computing and Communications Equipment.

“AITC is pleased to have been selected by NAWCTSD to support this important mission.  We are proficient at providing support worldwide in any type of environment and this continues to show our commitment to delivering solutions and services anytime and anywhere,” says Gabe Ruiz, CEO and President of AITC.
