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.
