DRS Technologies Awarded $10 Million Contract for US Army Heavy Ammunition Trailers

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
DRS Technologies
: 23 April, 2008  (New Product)
DRS Technologies, Inc. has announced that it received a $10.1 million order to build more than 140 additional M989A1 Heavy Expanded Mobility Ammunition Trailers (HEMATs).
The order was part of a previously awarded fixed-price, five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Army's Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren, Michigan. Work for this contract is being performed by the company's DRS Sustainment Systems unit in West Plains, Missouri.

The HEMATs are part of the U.S. Army's future force transformation and modularization into combat brigades rather than divisions. The trailer has a heavy industrial payload capacity to transport numerous and extremely heavy Multiple Launch Rocket System pods, palletized or non-palletized conventional Ammunition and fuel bladders. The trailers can be operated on paved, unpaved or cross-country roads.
