BAE Systems has upgraded the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) capabilities on the 5,000th mine-resistant tactical vehicle for US and allied forces.
The important milestone comes as the U.S. Army, a Space and Naval Warfare SPAWAR customer, seeks to improve the mission capabilities of its tactical vehicle fleet and enhance situational awareness for soldiers.
The work is part of the Tactical Vehicle Engineering and Prototyping Support Services program through SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic, based in Charleston, South Carolina, with the integration work taking place at BAE Systems’ facility in nearby Summerville.
The C4I upgrades enhance vehicle communications systems, intercom systems, mobile network systems, and soldier protective systems on a variety of mine-resistant vehicles, including M-ATV vehicles, MaxxPro DASH and Ambulances, and RG-31 platforms.
“These vehicles are being redeployed throughout the world to support critical current and ongoing missions,” said Kris Busch, vice president of BAE Systems’ C4ISR and Electronic Systems business.
Oshkosh Corp has been awarded a contract by the United Arab Emirates to provide 750 mine-resistant, all-terrain vehicles to its armed forces. The M-ATVs is scheduled to be delivered between January and August 2013 and the contract cost is estimated to be $330 million
