BAE Systems has been awarded a $128.6 million contract from the Defense Logistics Agency for production of the Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment (MOLLE) system. The new contract includes two one-year options, bringing the potential contract award to $374 million
The MOLLE system is the primary load carrying equipment for the U.S. Army. Each system set incorporates 37 components and is comprised of vests, pockets, backpacks, and hydration systems. The MOLLE system enables soldiers to carry necessary equipment critical to their mission.

“With this new contract the Defense Logistics Agency has ensured that the MOLLE system and its individual components are sustained at the high levels required to meet the needs of our armed forces,” said Sean Martin, director, business development of Individual Equipment for BAE Systems. “This procurement of the MOLLE system is critical to maintaining solder effectiveness.”

The contract is expected to create an estimated 100 jobs to the BAE Systems workforce. Production will be completed at facilities located in Arizona, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Base year deliveries are scheduled within one year of the award date.
