Bae-systems-logo_ExecutiveBiz1BAE Systems will provide the U.S. Army with engineering, manufacturing and development and low-rate initial production support for the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle under a potential $1.2 billion contract.

The company said Tuesday that it will produce 29 AMPVs for the EMD phase of the project and another 289 units for the LRIP phase to replace the Army’s fleet of M113 armored personnel carriers.

Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager of combat vehicles at BAE Systems, said the program will work to bolster the survivability, mobility and force protection capabilities of the service.

The AMPVs will operate alongside the Armored Brigade Combat Team, BAE said.

The company will perform contract work at its facilities in Pennsylvania and Michigan.

BAE Systems worked on the AMPV program with partners DRS Technologies, Northrop Grumman, Air Methods and Red River Army Depot.
