BAE Systems receives US Army armour order
BAE Systems has been issued with an order from the US Army for the production and delivery of side ballistic insert plates, known as XSBI hard body armour.
The contract, worth $15.8 million, was announced in a 12 January 2012 company statement.
XSBI hard body armour inserts are worn on the inside of a Soldier’s vest to protect against a variety of ballistic threats. The protective plates, worn on both sides of the torso, offer greater ballistic protection over soft armour alone and are fully qualified by the US Government to meet the military’s rigid requirements and specifications.
According to the company, this order is part of a contract awarded to BAE Systems in September 2010. The most recent award brings the total contract value to approximately $50.6 million.
