U.S. Marine Corps Awards General Dynamics $144 M Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle Contract
The U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, a $144 million contract modification for the continuation of the System Development and Demonstration (SDD) phase of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) program. The contract funds the Design for Reliability (DFR) effort through September 2008.
This contract validates the efforts of the joint General Dynamics-U.S. Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle program office to achieve a reliable system that will allow the Marines to fulfill their expeditionary warfare mission well into the 21st century. General Dynamics Land Systems has solid customer direction and the funding to implement a plan to achieve the desired results.
The EFV Mission Essential Functions (MEFs) of land and water high speed maneuver, firepower lethality, communication systems, and the ability to carry a reinforced infantry squad and armor protection have been met and validated. Achieving reliability is the only remaining performance parameter before low rate production can begin, which is projected for 2011. General Dynamics is working very closely with the U.S. Marine Corps and remains committed to achieving the EFV reliability requirement at the earliest practical date.
