Army Releases Draft RFP for M113 Replacement

Late last month the U.S. Army released a draft Request for Proposals (RFP) for the vehicle to replace the M113 fully tracked, armored personnel carrier. The new Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) will be used to provide supporting roles on the battlefield to the current M1/M2 forces and also work with the new Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) as it enters service. The goal is to have the final RFP out later this year and award a single contractor a development contractor by the end of FY2014.

Of course this will have to wait on the available funds in the 2014 budget whihc has yet to be sent to the Hill by the Obama Administration.

The M113 entered service in the early 1960′s primarily as a lightly armored vehicle to move infantry around the battlefield in conjunction with the M48 and M60 tanks. It was designed to protect against small arms and artillery rather then direct anti-tank weapons. Troops would dismount to fight from the vehicle rather then fight while moving. The M113 was very similar to other armed forces systems like the British FV432 or the Soviet BTR50.

Since the M113 chassis was available it was heavily modified to conduct a series of support roles like ambulance, command vehicle, mortar carrier as well as carrying Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) and even formed the basis for the M114 scout. The AMPV will not fulfill the infantry mission as the M2 and GCV are for that but is planned to do the supporting roles. The draft RFP calls for different versions including general support, mortar carrier, command vehicles and medical support vehicles. The Army plans to procure about 3,000 of the system.

The Army’s focus right now is on protection to counter the mine / Improvised Explosive Device (IED) threat which was most prevalent in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles developed and deployed to counter them there were not tactical vehicles but provided safe ability to transport troops around the countries. The GCV and AMPV will be tactical vehicles and there armor requirements reflect this. The GCV will be tank like in weight to protect 9 troops and 3 crew. The AMPV will not be as heavy but still requires significant underbody protection. At the same time they must be protected against direct and indirect battlefield threats such as tank guns, ATGM and man portable anti-tank weapons.

These requirements will drive up costs and development times. To save money on the AMPV, like the GCV, the Army is now proposing only one winner where previously it had been hoped like the successful MRAP-ATV program more then one development contract could be awarded and a drive off occur. Both General Dynamics (GD), who make the current wheeled Stryker Interim Combat Vehicle, and BAE Systems, the M2 Bradley manufacturer, are expected to bid. Other companies could also bid as there are several systems already in production that could with some modifications meet the requirements.

The winner would not only see the Army 3,00 vehicle requirements but probably quite a bit of FMS sales as other nations adopt the U.S. system.

BAE Gets Contract for Radford Ammo Plant

Two years ago the British based BAE Systems (BAE:LSE) was able to win away from ATK (ATK) the contract to run the U.S. Army’s Radford facility that manufactures explosives. ATK had had the contract to operate it for several years and due to the demands of the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq the plant generated a great deal of revenue for the operator. It was a hard fought win due to a protest and there being multiple competitions to evaluate the different proposals.

With the current budgetary situation and the end of Iraq’s fighting along with the winding down of Afghanistan it could be expected that demand for the products at Radford may go down. Luckily for BAE the Army has just announced that they awarded the company a large contract to manufacture explosives primarily for artillery shells at the facility. This could be worth up to $780 million if all options are executed.

As the U.S. military returns from Afghanistan it will need to replenish stocks of munitions as well as continue building newer, more reliable one. Training operations will also need to be supported. While this means that demand may not be as high as before there will still be consumption of artillery and other shells which will require production of new stock at Radford.

Loc Performance Products, Inc. to Partner with BAE on U.S. Army’s Paladin Integrated Management Program — Press Release

- Loc Performance to Collaborate with BAE on Development of Final Drive Assembly

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Michigan-based Loc Performance Products, Inc. will partner with global defense leader BAE Systems to design, test, and manufacture prototype final drive assemblies for the U.S. Army’s M109A6/M992A2 Paladin Integrated Management (PIM) program.

With a successful history of designing and producing the highest quality final drive assemblies for a variety of military vehicles, Loc will serve as the design lead for gears, along with providing design review support, developmental testing, and prototype manufacturing for the planned expansion of the self-propelled howitzer and ammunition supply-vehicle fleet.

Lou Burr, President of Loc Performance Products commented, “We are pleased to partner with BAE as we continue to design and produce superior products for our military clients. Loc is honored to be recognized as having an important role in the development of next-generation fighting and supply vehicles, and looks forward to the continued production of reliable, high performing products to meet the diverse needs of our nation’s armed forces.”

Loc Performance Products has produced over 13,000 final drive assemblies for the U.S. military, spanning the entire Department of Defense fleet of combat tracked vehicles. The expected production of slightly under 600 M109A6/M992A2 vehicle sets will represent the evolution of critical fire and munitions support in Heavy Brigade Combat Teams (HBCT) for a variety of deployments. With an estimated lifecycle through 2050, the PIM program will remain an essential component of the military’s tracked vehicle capabilities for the coming decades.

“The contract structure provides maximum value by leveraging Loc’s expertise in manufacturing and assembling final drives with BAE’s expertise in system engineering design and analysis,” said Chad Darr, Director of Product Development at Loc. “It offers the program a smooth transition into Low-Rate-Initial-Production (LRIP) by manufacturing the developmental prototypes utilizing production intent processes.”

Loc Performance Products is Michigan’s premier full service manufacturer of large CNC machined components and assemblies for military and industrial applications. With proven capabilities in product design and development through production, Loc offers comprehensive solutions and exceptional customer service to produce the highest quality products at competitive pricing.

Ground Combat Vehicle Decision to be Delayed

3286900481_fe603c77a6_mIt is being reported that the Army has decided to delay the Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) six months. This is being done most likely in response to the current budgetary situation with the potential sequestration cuts.

The Defense Department has done a good job awarding current contract options this past few months to get things on contract to limit the effects of sequestration on existing work. Unfortunately new contracts will be affected as there may not be as much money available to award later this year. GCV may be in that situation. Delaying it several months should get you into Fiscal Year 2014 with a better handle on what money you have and allow the budget to prioritize funding.

Sequestration may force across the board cuts in all defense appropriations and limit the ability of new, large contracts to be awarded for the remainder of this Fiscal Year.

Two teams of contractors were awarded development contracts by the Army for the M2 Bradley replacement in 2011. One of those designs will be selected to go into Engineering, Manufacturing & Development (EMD) and ultimately into full production. This may still be several years into the future. These were to General Dynamics (GD) and to a team of BAE Systems and Northrop Grumman (NOC). The bid by the 2 prime contractors on the cancelled Future Combat System (FCS) the last attempt to build a Bradley replacement, Boeing (BA) and SAIC (SAIC), was not accepted.
