: 09 March, 2007  (Company News)
The U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, three contract modifications totaling approximately $70 million for combat vehicle-related work.
Two contract modifications were awarded for Stryker combat vehicle reset work. The first, valued at $43 million, relates to supporting the reset of the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, Fort Lewis, Wash. Work will be performed by existing General Dynamics employees in Sterling Heights; London, Ontario, Canada; and Fort Lewis, Wash. The work is expected to be completed by June 2008. A second contract modification for $5 million is for reset work in Balad, Iraq. Work will be performed by existing employees in Sterling Heights, London and Iraq and is expected to be completed by February 2008.

Through the reset program, vehicles are serviced, repaired and modified to a pre-combat condition. Service technicians also apply modifications to bring the Strykers to the latest configuration, preparing them for the unit's next deployment.

A third contract modification for $22 million was awarded for Abrams tank Systems Technical Support (STS). Abrams STS facilitates engineering studies to identify improvements and provides for the change-out of obsolete parts, while keeping Abrams main battle Tanks current to their base configurations. The STS program's objective is to maintain Abrams Tanks at high operational readiness rates. This modification funds tank urban survivability kits, maintenance, field reset, and field service representative support for the Australian Land Forces' M1A1 Abrams program. Existing General Dynamics employees will perform the work in Sterling Heights. It is expected to be completed by December 2011.
