The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced several notable Army contracts Friday, highlighted by a $245.2 million modification to a deal with BAE Systems Land & Armaments for M109A7 self-propelled howitzers and 30 M992A3 carrier ammunition tracked vehicles.
The majority of the money ($220.7 million) is classified as fiscal 2015 funds, while the remaining amount is fiscal 2014 funds. The labor will be performed in York, Pa., (82 percent) and Elgin, Okla. (18 percent). The work should be finished on June 29, 2018.
Textron-owned aerospace and defense development company AAI received two contracts related to Shadow drones.
The more lucrative of the two deals is a $110 million indefinite-quantity/indefinite-delivery contract for performance-based logistics for the drones. AAI was the only company to submit a bid for the work. The location of the labor and the involved funding will be decided along with each order, and all the work should be finished on Oct.29, 2016.
The second deal is a $32.5 million firm-fixed-price contract for program management services related to the performance-based logistics for the drone. AAI was the only company to submit a bid for the work. More than $1.5 million in fiscal 2016 operations and maintenance Army funds will be assigned with the award. The labor will be conducted in Hunt Valley, Md., and should be finished on Oct. 29, 2016.
