Bradley Fighting Vehicles to get situational awareness upgrade from BAE Systems
YORK, Pa., 5 Feb. 2011. BAE Systems won a $47 million contract modification to enhance 95 of the Bradley Fighting Vehicles by replacing damaged and obsolete components with updated equipment and technology.
The award amount of $47 million is the first tasking under a not-to-exceed total contract amount of $94 million. Additional orders for the balance of the contract value may be awarded in the future. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management.
Work will be performed by the company's existing workforce at its facilities in Fayette and York, Pa., as well as the Red River Army Depot in Texarkana, Texas. Vehicle deliveries will begin in March 2012 and will end in June 2012.
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.
