Lockheed Martin UK (LMUK) has announced that it is leading the seven-company Alliance team to bid to become the Strategic Training Partner (STP) for the British Army's Collective Training Transformation Programme (CTTP). The programme will deliver the army's Future Collective Training System (FCTS) covering training from platoon to brigade level.

According to the army's November 2022 CTTP Information Paper, β€œThe CTTP will transform the collective training enterprise by selecting a Strategic Training Partner from industry, with whom the army will deliver the comprehensive enterprise transformation required to provide increased training system flexibility to allow the army to train when, where, and how it needs to meet defence outputs. The FCTS will also transform the collective training experience for soldiers and commanders at all levels through improved access to data and a more flexible blend of live, virtual, and constructive training.”

The Alliance partnership consists of LMUK, Turner and Townsend, Ravenswood Technologies UK, Cubic Defence UK, 4GD, KX, and Splunk. Chris Harrison, business development director at LMUK, told Janes that each member offered complementary skills and capabilities. A common theme in building the team had been to look for innovators who could also facilitate a low-risk transition from the current collective training state to the future system, he said.

Turner and Townsend will provide project management and already provides programme and commercial delivery for the UK's Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) organisation through projects Paragon and Equinox, respectively.
