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.

The new contract enables field service engineers to deploy with all Land Warrior-equipped units and provide support for housing, repairing and shipping spare and replacement Land Warrior gear worldwide. The US Army currently owns more than 900 Land Warrior ensembles, 300 vehicle-integration kits and other Land Warrior-related equipment.

Mark Showah, director of Integrated Systems for General Dynamics C4 Systems, said, “All Land Warrior equipped teams will immediately benefit from access to the essential resources, provided by this contract, to be successful and effective in the fight.”

General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE:  GD), is a leading integrator of secure communication and information systems and technology.
