General Dynamics Awarded $20 Million for M1A1 Abrams Reset

General Dynamics : 28 August, 2007  (Company News)
The U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), a $20 million delivery order as part of a $37 million contract to reset 36 M1A1 Abrams Integrated Management (AIM) main battle tanks.
The reset process restores used equipment to combat level capability. The reset Tanks will feature improved technology that will bolster crew situational awareness. The upgrades include second-generation Forward-Looking Infrared, Far Target Locate, a tank-infantry phone and driver's vision enhancement. The improvements increase the M1A1 Abrams tank's fighting capability by providing soldiers with an electronic graphic of the battlefield that features icons for friendly and enemy forces and provides a tank commander's thermal sight for the .50 caliber machine gun.

Work will be performed in Anniston, Ala.; Tallahassee, Fla., Lima, Ohio; and Scranton, Pa., by existing General Dynamics employees, and is expected to be completed by November 2008.
