PHOENIX, Arizona -- BAE Systems has received a $10.8 million award from SSI Technology, Inc. to provide Advanced Survivability Seats for Bradley Fighting Vehicles used by the U.S. Army.
The specially designed seats – called Survivor Post Mount 1000 and Survivor Modular Troop 3000 – include an energy-absorbing technology to protect soldiers and other warfighters.
“This technology helps decrease the potential for spinal injuries that may result from the shock of a blast,” said Frank Crispino, director of vehicle protection programs at BAE Systems Support Solutions. “The seat and restraint system are integral components of the overall vehicle survivability capability to protect occupants from blasts and other threats.”
The order builds upon BAE Systems’ strong history of performance, as the company has provided more than 1,900 Bradley seats since 2009. The latest upgrades are in association with the Bradley Advanced Survivability Seats – Driver program and will be applied to a portion of the Army’s Bradley Urban Survivability Kit program.
The work will be performed at BAE Systems’ facility in Phoenix, Ariz., with deliveries beginning this May and concluding in June 2013. There are approximately 450 employees in Phoenix, where the company has been providing occupant safety products for more than 30 years.
As a leader in survivability systems for land, air and naval applications, BAE Systems is developing lifesaving products to protect occupants, including crashworthy seating systems; ceramic and transparent armor technologies; integrated vehicle armor systems; vehicle and aircraft survivability components and accessories; as well as soldier protection equipment used around the world.
