General Dynamics Receives Abrams, Stryker Contracts

General Dynamics : 13 June, 2007  (New Product)
General Dynamics Receives Abrams, Stryker Contracts
General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded nearly $18 million for work on the U.S. Army's Abrams main battle tank and Stryker eight-wheeled combat vehicle.

The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command, Warren, Mich., awarded the company a $7.3 million contract modification for Systems Technical Support (STS) for the Abrams tank program. STS funds engineering studies on Abrams Tanks to identify improvements and change-out obsolete parts, while keeping the Tanks current to their respective base configurations. The STS

program's objective is to maintain high operational readiness. The work will be performed in Sterling Heights by the existing workforce through December 31, 2011.

The U.S. Army also awarded General Dynamics a $10.5 million contract for Stryker Brigade Combat Team logistics support. This work will be performed by existing employees in Sterling Heights (17 percent); Fort Lewis, Wash. (30 percent); Germany (8 percent); Iraq (14 percent); Kuwait (2 percent); and London, Ontario, Canada (29 percent). The work is expected to be completed by July 29, 2008.
