The U.S. Army has awarded contracts to five companies to provide design services for the integration of a new weapon system into the Stryker combat vehicle, Defense News reported Thursday.

General Dynamics' Land Systems unit, Elbit Systems' Kollsman subsidiary, Leonardo DRS, Pratt & Miller Engineering and Fabrication Inc. and Raytheon each will receive not more than $150K to help equip the Army's Double V-Hull A1 Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicles with the government-furnished XM813 gun.

The Stryker Medium Caliber Weapons System lethality program will run in two phases with a portion of the work focusing on a production-representative vehicle.

The Army plans to issue draft requests for proposals in the fall of 2019 for the second part of the program, where developers will compete for a production contract.

Integration of the new XM813 on the Stryker DVH A1 brigade is expected to begin by fiscal year 2022. Three brigades are expected to operate the combat vehicles.
