Category: Defence Industry

Oshkosh Truck Corporation announced today that the company has been awarded a contract by Marine Corps Systems Command to provide four test vehicles in support of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program. Under the contract, Oshkosh will provide two Category I and two Category II vehicles, which will then undergo testing at the government's Aberdeen Proving Ground. Oshkosh Truck was one of several companies awarded a contract to provide vehicles for testing under the MRAP initiative.

The Category I vehicle is the smaller of the two vehicles, intended for urban operations and referred to as the Mine Resistant Utility Vehicle (MRUV). The Category II vehicle is a larger platform, designated as the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Rapid Response Vehicle (JERRV), and is designed to carry up to 10 passengers on multiple types of missions.

Following testing, the Marine Corps program office can place orders on the Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contract for up to 1,500 of the Category I vehicles, and 2,600 of the Category II vehicles. The MRAP program is a joint acquisition taking place under Rapid Deployment Capability authority, intended to field protected vehicles to forces in theater in large quantities as rapidly as possible.
