A General Dynamics Land Systems team evaluated its design of a new ground combat vehicle for the U.S. Army under a $493.7 million contract awarded in 2011 for the technology development phase.
The subsidiary is leading a team comprising of Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Tognum America to build a vehicle for the Army’s Ground Combat Vehicle Infantry Fighting Vehicle program, General Dynamics said Friday.
General Dynamics’ team worked to demonstrate the vehicle’s compliance with the program’s tier one requirements and is in the process of gaining compliance for tier two.
“The strong performance has put us on a solid path for building the automotive test rig, continuing the system detailed design and enhancing each of the vehicle’s key subsystem and component level designs during the remainder of our technology demonstration contract,” said Robert Sorge, senior director for the GCV IFV program at General Dynamics Land Systems.
According to the company, the review took place over four days after other subsystem and component design reviews that occurred between August and October.
