US Army Alaska (USARAK) has granted Ravenswood Solutions an $857K contract to provide support to the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division (4/25 ABCT) Culminating Training Event (CTE) – known as Arctic Anvil – at Camp Shelby, Mississippi.
Ravenswood will provide USARAK with exercise control (EXCON), battlefield effects (BFE) and battlefield immersion (BFI) support.
Ravenswood’s EXCON team will conduct exercise design, scenario development, orders production and exercise synchronization. Its BFE/BFI team will replicate indirect fires, improvised explosive devices and battlefield obscuration.
The company will also provide civilians on the battlefield and role players throughout the training area, adding to the exercise’s realism and complexity.
Arctic Anvil will take place in October. It will prepare 4/25 ABCT for their upcoming Joint Readiness Training Center rotation at Fort Polk, La., in January.
