BAE Systems recently received a $27.2 million contract modification from the US Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command to reset 44 Bradley A2 Operation Desert Storm (ODS) vehicles.



When combined with $227 million previously funded in March, this modification brings the total Reset contract value to $254.4 million. Work on this contract will begin immediately with deliveries scheduled to be complete by May 2007.



BAE Systems, in partnership with Red River Army Depot, will return a total of 44 Bradley Combat Systems to a combat ready status and provide Blue Force Tracking mounting provisions for all 44 vehicles.



Disassembly and component overhaul work will be performed at the depot and BAE Systems in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Final assembly, integration and test will be conducted at the company’s facility in York, Pennsylvania. BAE Systems will field the Bradley vehicles directly to the unit at its location and conduct any necessary training and technical support.


The C4ISR-equipped, network-ready Bradley vehicles feature a proven set of armor designed to protect soldiers against a wide variety of threats and are equipped with the Bradley Urban Survivability Kit.
