AMSG Continues Marine Corps Support
Brian Christmas, John Hinson, and Bob Massie
AMSG is privileged to continue our support to the Marine Corps team with over a decade experience providing Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) support, Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership, Personnel, and Facilities (DOTMLPF) analysis, materiel capability solutions and analysis, and Program Objective Memorandum (POM) support. Our recent efforts have principally been executed through the Capability Development Directorate (CDD) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, a 5-year contract through which we provide support to the Ground Combat Element Division – Force Protection and the Aviation Combat Element Division. This support is the Marine Corps Marine Air Command and Control Systems (MACCS) Integration Branch (MIB); the Aviation Vehicle Integration Branch (AVIB); the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Defense Branch (CBRN); the Active Security Branch; and the Engineer and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Branch. Within each Division, AMSG was awarded additional option years to continue our support of new capabilities and next generation solutions to our forward deployed Marines.
AMSG support to the Marine Corps Marine Air Command and Control Systems (MACCS) Integration Branch (MIB) at Headquarters Marine Corps Combat Development & Integration (CD&I), focuses our efforts on all Marine Corps capabilities associated with Command and Control (C2), Sensors, and Effectors operating in support of Fleet Marine Force (FMF) Aviation Operations as well as Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD). Our AMSG employees and subcontracted partners from Amentum and Booz Allen Hamilton are essential to the continued success of these high-profile programs including CAC2S and Small Form Factor; AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR and other ground sensor capabilities; Marine Air Defense Integrated System (MADIS), Light MADIS (LMADIS), and Installation Counter Small Uncrewed Aircraft System (I-CsUAS); as well as the Medium Range Intercept Capability (MRIC).
AMSG efforts to the Marine Corps AVIB at Headquarters Marine Corps CD&I provides support for the development of requirements for the Marine Corps Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (UAS) and its Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities. AMSG employees and subcontracted partners from Section Integrity and SimVentions provide direct support to AVIB’s requirements development for the Family of Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (FoUAS) that includes Small UAS development and the Medium-Altitude, Low Endurance capability.
AMSG’s long continued support to the CBRN Defense Branch at Headquarters Marine Corps Combat Development & Integration (CD&I) provide continuity in our efforts focusing on all Marine Corps capabilities associated with CBRN Defense and CBRN Medical Countermeasures in support of FMF, Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) operations. Our support includes identifying, developing, coordinating, and collaborating with the operating forces, supporting establishment command and internal integration divisions for future MAGTF Force Protection operating concepts, capabilities, requirements and related materiel and non-materiel solutions that optimally support engagement in both conventional and irregular warfare. Our AMSG employees and subcontracted partners from Amentum are essential to the continued success of the maturation of fifteen (15) Joint Service CBRN Defense and five (5) CBRN Medical Countermeasure Programs under development.
AMSG rekindled its relationship with the Engineer and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Branch, having provided both EOD and C-IED support in previous years. Initially, awarded an EOD contract in 2021, we were awarded another option year in 2022 to continue developmental efforts towards fielding Littoral Explosive Ordnance Neutralization (LEON) materiel capability solutions.
Additionally, AMSG is providing capability development support to the Active Security Branch for a new effort entitled the Mobile All-Domain Observation and Sensing System (MA-DOSS) Family of Systems (FoS). This new capability intends to conduct persistent surveillance, tactical early warning, and multi-domain intrusion detection bringing forth a next-generation capability to the Modern Marine.
AMSG’s and our partners’ efforts are putting state-of-the-art and next generation capabilities into the hands of our Marines to protect our warfighters so they may defeat our adversaries. Future AMSG Gazettes will highlight some of these programs and the amazing work being done by our team members.
