BAE Systems provides situational awareness capability for Bradley combat vehicle

BY JOHN MCHALE

YORK, Pa.-BAE Systems won a $41 million contract modification to finish buying situational awareness items for the reset of 101 Bradley Operation Desert Storm Situational Awareness (ODS SA) vehicles. The contract was awarded by U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command.

BAE Systems will purchase 101 kits of long-lead items and additional parts with which to refurbish Bradley ODS SA vehicles to pre-combat condition and upgrading them to the improved situational awareness capability.

This recent contract provides the balance of funding, worth $41 million, for a contract modification BAE Systems was awarded in December 2009 for $74 million to purchase long-lead items for the reset of 101 Bradley ODS SA vehicles. The total value of the finalized Bradley ODS SA contract is $115 million.

"The procurement of these situational awareness parts will provide our soldiers with a modernized vehicle that will help to protect them and aid in performing successful missions," says Joe McCarthy, vice president and general manager of the Heavy Brigade Combat Team Systems for BAE Systems.

Bradley Fighting Vehicles continue to provide survivability, mobility, and lethality to U.S. soldiers in various combat situations. The Bradley fulfills five critical mission roles-infantry fighting vehicle, cavalry fighting vehicle, fire support vehicle, command vehicle, and engineer squad vehicle-for the U.S. Army's Heavy Brigade Combat Team.

BAE Systems designs, manufactures, and supports Bradley Fighting Vehicles through its U.S. Combat Systems business. U.S. Combat Systems is a modern, efficient, full-spectrum developer, integrator, and supplier of survivable, lethal ground, and naval combat platforms.
