Serge Posted October 5, 2012 Share Posted October 5, 2012 La modernisation se poursuit pour tenir encore quelques années: BAE Systems has announced that it has received a $55 million contract for the second phase of the Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) effort for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. This contract continues the ECP research and development efforts to upgrade the full Bradley fleet and improve the overall vehicle performance for the US Army. The Bradley Fighting Vehicle is one of the most survivable and reliable combat systems in the US Army inventory. According to the company, this ECP2 contract funds the Research Development Test & Evaluation effort that will improve the Bradley’s engine, transmission, and power distribution. These new technologies will be integrated into the Bradley so that the space, weight, and power-cooling functions are current and well-maintained throughout the fleet. Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager of Vehicle Systems at BAE Systems, said: ‘By implementing these engineering changes, we will be able to provide soldiers with new technologies and improved vehicle performance to counter existing and future threats. This contract allows us to develop and implement improvements that best meet our current warfighter needs and ensure that the Bradley remains one of the most effective vehicles in the army’s arsenal.’ BAE Systems received $16 million in funding under this contract last year. The full value contract is expected to reach $234 million. The contract was awarded by the US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command and work is anticipated to begin in October 2012 with final delivery expected in July 2017. http://www.shephardmedia.com/news/landwarfareintl/second-phase-bradley-engineering-contract-issued/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
