BAE Systems contract for ECP Engineering Change Proposal for the U.S. Army Bradley armoured.
BAE Systems received a $55 million contract for the second phase of the Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) effort for the Armoured Bradley Fighting Vehicle – one of the most survivable and reliable combat systems in the U.S. Army inventory. This contract continues the ECP research and development efforts to upgrade the full Bradley fleet and improve the overall vehicle performance for the U.S. Army. Last year, the company received $16 million in funding under this contract. The full value contract is expected to reach $234 million.

“By implementing these engineering changes, we will be able to provide soldiers with new technologies and improved vehicle performance to counter existing and future threats,” said Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager of Vehicle Systems at BAE Systems. “This contract allows us to develop and implement improvements that best meet our current warfighter needs and ensure that the Bradley remains one of the most effective vehicles in the Army’s arsenal.”

This ECP2 contract funds the Research Development Test & Evaluation effort that will improve the Bradley’s engine, transmission, and power distribution. These new technologies will be integrated into the Bradley so that the space, weight, and power-cooling functions are current and well-maintained throughout the fleet.

The contract was awarded by the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command and work is anticipated to begin in October 2012 with final delivery expected in July 2017. Work will be carried out by the existing workforce at BAE Systems operations in York, Pennsylvania; Sterling Heights, Michigan; and Santa Clara, California. The contract contributes to maintaining an experienced and specialized workforce and the defense industrial base required to continue producing armored fighting vehicles for the United States Armed Forces. All combat vehicles in the Armored Brigade Combat Team, with the exception of the M1 tank, are manufactured by BAE Systems.
