SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., 27 Oct. 2009. General Dynamics C4 Systems won a $50 million contract to supply the U.S. Army with comprehensive engineering and logistics-support services to help ensure that Land Warrior integrated modular fighting systems used in combat remain in operational condition for soldiers. The contract also includes maintaining ensembles used for training and those returning from theater. The contract is valued at $19 million, covers one base year with two option years, and has a total potential value of $50 million if all options are exercised.
The new contract enables field service engineers to deploy with all Land Warrior-equipped units and provide support for housing, repairing, and shipping spare and replacement Land Warrior gear worldwide. The U.S. Army owns more than 900 Land Warrior ensembles, 300 vehicle-integration kits, and other Land Warrior-related equipment.
Mark Showah, director of Integrated Systems for General Dynamics C4 Systems, says: "All Land Warrior equipped teams will immediately benefit from access to the essential resources, provided by this contract, to be successful and effective in the fight."
