ARLINGTON, Virginia -– BAE Systems has been awarded three contract modifications worth a total of $24.5 million to perform various vehicle upgrades and provide field service support for Bradley Fighting Vehicles.

Each contract focuses on various areas within the Bradley life cycle including engineering enhancements, such as suspension upgrades, as well as field service, training and maintenance services.

“The services under this contract provide continued upgrades to one of the U.S. Army’s most survivable vehicles,” said Joe McCarthy, vice president of the Heavy Brigade Combat Team at BAE Systems. “These contract modifications also reflect BAE Systems’ continued commitment in supporting the soldier and the Heavy Brigade Combat Team through fleet life cycle management.”

Bradley Fighting Vehicles continue to provide outstanding survivability, mobility and lethality to U.S. soldiers in close-combat urban situation as well as in open-combat. The Bradley fulfils five critical mission roles – infantry fighting vehicle, cavalry fighting vehicle, fire support vehicle, battle command vehicle an engineer squad vehicle – for the Army’s Heavy Brigade Combat Teams.

The majority of the work will be performed by the company’s existing workforce at its facility in Santa Clara, California. Work will also be performed at BAE Systems sites in Sterling Heights, Michigan and York, Pennsylvania and is anticipated to be complete by November 2011.

BAE Systems designs, manufactures and supports Bradley Fighting Vehicle through its U.S. Combat Systems business.
