The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
19 Feb. 2019 -- These awards mark the beginning of low-rate production for the highly mobile, survivable, multipurpose armored combat vehicle designed to meet the mission of the U.S. Army’s Armored Brigade Combat Teams (ABCT).
The AMPV program provides the Army with a more survivable and mobile fleet of vehicles that addresses a critical need to replace the Vietnam War-era M113. Production will include five variants of the AMPV: command and control, general purpose, medical evacuation, medical treatment, and mortar carrier.
The AMPV and its vetronics can maneuver with the rest of the ABCT. Commonality within the ABCT also reduces developmental risk and streamlines maintenance, providing significant cost savings to the Army.
