VT Miltope awarded additional MSD-V3 order
VT Miltope, a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that it has received an additional $43.9m order from the US Army to supply the At Platform Automatic Test Systems (APATS) Maintenance Support Device-Version 3 (MSD-V3). This new order, which is part of the $500.0m indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity MSD-V3 contract awarded in 2009, brings the total awarded value for this contract to $148.5m.
This order is based on the Rugged Convertible Laptop Computer-Type 1 (RCLC-1), the next generation of the HARD WEAR family of rugged computers. The RCLC-1 is a convertible laptop-to-tablet computer that is qualified to MIL-STD-810G/461F/464A and can withstand the most extreme and volatile conditions. Work is expected to commence immediately on the MSD-V3 Type 1 kits with a delivery date in 2012.
"VT Miltope has provided MSDs in support of US Army maintainers for more than 10 years. We look forward to the constant challenge of supplying our soldiers with the best possible equipment to help them succeed in the field under the toughest conditions," Julie A. Briggs, President and CEO, VT Miltope, commented.
