SAIC-led team resubmits GCV proposal to US Army

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today it will continue to lead a team pursuing the US Army’s Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) programme.

The SAIC-led team submitted a revised proposal for the technology development phase of the Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) being developed under the GCV effort to the US government.

The team originally submitted a proposal in May 2010, but the initial Request for Proposal was rescinded by the Army, and a second RFP issued in November 2010.

SAIC’s Team Full Spectrum, comprising the Boeing Company, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall Defence (RMD), is proposing what it believes is well-positioned to meet the Army’s accelerated development needs because of its MGV and Puma heritage.
