General Dynamics awarded $50 million by US Army for Land Warrior engineering and logistics support
General Dynamics C4 Systems has been awarded a $50 million contract to supply the US Army with comprehensive engineering and logistics-support services to help ensure that Land Warrior integrated modular fighting systems currently used in combat are kept in operational condition for soldiers.
The contract also includes maintaining ensembles used for training and those returning from theater. The one-year contract is valued at $19 million. The contract covers one base year with two option years and has a total potential value of $50 million if all options are exercised.
