BAE Systems Secures $60.6 Million In Contract Modifications For Heavy Vehicle

Category: Contracts

BAE Systems has been awarded contract modifications from the U.S. Army Tank Automotive & Armaments Command (TACOM) for work on Bradley Fighting Vehicles, Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) Redesigned Cabs, and M113A3 Ambulance vehicles. The total value of the contract modifications is $60.6 million.

"The Bradley and M113 Family of Vehicles play integral roles in the Army's Heavy Brigade Combat Teams," said Joe McCarthy, vice president and general manager of HBCT Systems for BAE Systems. "BAE Systems continues to support our troops overseas by maintaining and improving these vehicles to ensure soldiers are protected and able to complete their mission."

Specifically, the contracts include:

  • $54.4 million for installation of survivability modifications on Bradley vehicles at Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Stewart, Georgia, Fort Bliss, Texas, Iraq, Kuwait and Germany. Modifications include an advanced fire suppression system, new seats, new ammunition restraints, and mounting provisions for armor tiles.

  • $5.4 million for design updates to the Bradley Operation Desert Storm Situational Awareness vehicles to more closely parallel that of a Bradley A3 vehicle. This design work supports production deliveries to the National Guard in 2010.

  • $414,000 for installation of the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and Environmental Control Unit (ECU) modification kits on the MLRS redesigned cabs in the field. The award also includes training to the MLRS crew and maintenance personnel.

  • $350,000 for integration of the Mounted Soldier Systems (MSS) for the M113A3 Ambulance vehicle. The system includes cooling vests for crew members, helmet mounted display, wireless intercom improvements, and the Check 6 infra-red rear view system.

Work on these contracts will be managed out of the BAE Systems facility in Santa Clara, California and will be performed at other facilities including Fort Hood, Texas, and York, Pennsylvania.
