Elbit Systems of America was awarded a contract by the Defense Logistics Agency Land to supply the U.S. Army with gunner hand stations, commander hand stations and circuit cards for the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
The contract, with a maximum value of up to approximately $79 million, will be performed over a 5-year period. An initial purchase order of approximately $26 million under the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract followed by a second purchase order of approximately $12 million have been issued to be executed over a three-year period.
The gunner hand stations enable crew members to target and fire accurately and work in collaboration with the commander hand stations that drive the IFV’s turret and initiate signals to the turret fire control systems. The circuit cards provide processing and power supply to the hand station units.
