RG-33 variant(click to view full) BAE Systems Land & Armaments, Ground Systems Division, in York, PA received a $14.3 million order for field service representatives and instructors to support Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles in Iraq. BAE Systems expects to complete the work by December 2009. This order is a firm-fixed-priced modification of a previously awarded delivery order #0004 (89 RG-33 SOCOM) under a contract managed by the Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, VA (M67854-07-D-5025). MRAP vehicles are a family of armored fighting vehicles designed to survive IED attacks and ambushes. According to Wikipedia, IEDs cause the majority (63%) of US deaths in Iraq. There is no common MRAP vehicle design; there are several vendors, including BAE Systems, each with a competing design. For more information, see DID’s feature on BAE Systems’ family of MRAP offerings, order record, and associated contracts.
