Company to expand functionality of the Marine Corps’ training information management system
FAIRFAX, Va. – May 18, 2022 – ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and engineering solutions, has been awarded a three-year, $19 million contract to support the Marine Sierra Hotel Aviation Readiness Program (M-SHARP). As the prime incumbent on the firm-fixed-price (FFP) contract, ECS will expand on their existing work, building new and enhanced functionality for M-SHARP.
Managed by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Training and Education Command (TECOM) Aviation Standards Branch (ASB), M-SHARP is a web-based training management program that enables units to conduct flight operations and maintain combat readiness through real-time forecasting, scheduling, execution, and reporting. ECS will provide operational agile software engineering, maintenance and sustainment, routine updates, enhancements, user support and training, help desk support, accreditation and information assurance, as well as cloud hosting maintenance and sustainment.
Previously, ECS delivered a new training and readiness (T&R) module which streamlined the publication of T&R manuals internal to M-SHARP, improved the training and development of aircrew, and enabled readiness reporting for crews on all types, models, and series (T/M/S) of aircraft. Additionally, ECS oversaw the system’s migration to an approved USMC cloud environment, improving application performance and providing redundant, failover capabilities. Going forward, ECS will continue to support all Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) units with field service representative (FSR) end support and training, while delivering an integrated ticketing system, enhanced logging and reporting, and customized flight schedule capabilities.
