General Dynamics Awarded $14 Million for Mine Roller Systems

General Dynamics : 13 October, 2006  (New Product)
General Dynamics Awarded $14 Million for Mine Roller Systems for U.S. Marine Corps Vehicles
STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. - The U.S. Marine Corps has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), a contract for $14 million for 150 Mine Roller Systems (MRS).

The MRS is a countermine system that is mounted on wheeled vehicles to reduce the impact of pressure-activated explosive devices. The MRS detects and neutralizes mines and improvised explosive devices before the host vehicle passes over the explosive device. The MRS will be integrated on Marine Corps Light Armored Vehicles (LAVs), Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVRs), Joint Explosive ordnance Disposal Rapid Response Vehicles (JERRV), and High Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs).

Work will be performed in Lima, Ohio, and Sterling Heights, Mich., by existing General Dynamics Land Systems personnel. Deliveries begin in November 2006 and work is expected to be completed by February 2007.

General Dynamics, headquartered in Falls Church, Va., employs approximately 81,900 people worldwide and had 2005 revenue of $21.2 billion. The company is a market leader in mission-critical information systems and technologies; land and expeditionary combat systems, armaments and munitions; shipbuilding and marine systems; and business aviation.
