R3 awarded subcontract to support NECC

Virginia Beach, VA 25 July 2012

R3 Strategic Support Group, Inc., a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a subcontract through Engility Corporation to provide support to Navy Expeditionary Combat Command’s (NECC) Home Station Training Lane (HSTL) Evidence Based Management (EBM) Process.  The HSTLs are training areas throughout the United States positioned in Fleet Concentration Areas to provide Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED), Counter-Insurgency (COIN), Confronting Irregular Challenges (CIC), and emergency medical pre-deployment training for the Navy’s Expeditionary force.  Each site’s configuration and equipment, curriculum, and practical exercises are very similar.  The demanding individual and collective training environment is engineered specifically to enhance IED defeat operations.  R3’s support encompasses various tasks, including development of automated training support requests and student feedback mechanisms, schedule creation and management, as well as, data collection, storage and reporting.  R3’s EBM process will provide leaders with a readily accessible database of information collected from each training site and reporting capability to enable informed, empirically based training management and resource decisions designed to improve training delivery effectiveness and efficiency.
