The U.S. Navy is heavily involved in operations in Afghanistan by providing civil engineering support. The “SeaBee” units of construction personnel provide the ability as they have done since World War II to build facilities and provide services. In the day of the IED and mine their equipment needs to be armored and protected to survive this threat and protect their crews. As part of this effort the Navy awarded three companies the chance to provide up-armoring to the civil engineering equipment. One of these companies is American Defense Systems, Inc. (ADSI).

The contract allows the Navy to choose who will receive contracts under an Indefinite Quantity, Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) structure. There is no guarantee that ADSI or the other companies will win work but it represents a good step forward for the company. The contract allows a maximum of $50 million awards and this is larger then any previous quantity received by ADSI.

ADSI makes modular add on armor kits that are fit to the individual vehicles as necessary. This allows them to be applied to an array of different systems. They also may be applied in theater as well as in the U.S.

With the threat from the IED and mine as well as direct fire the U.S. has been moving over the last five-or-six years to develop up armored vehicles of all types. This is perhaps best exemplified by the use of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles used for troop transport and engineering work.
