Refurb time… General Dynamics Land Systems in Sterling Heights, MI received a $69.1 million modification to a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for “reset” of 265 M1126 Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicles, whose performance in Iraq was profiled recently by DID. This was a sole source contract initiated on June 30, 2005 by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren, MI issued the contract (DAAE07-02-C-B001). Through this contract General Dynamics will service, repair and modify 265 Stryker vehicles returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom, restoring them to a pre-combat, like-new condition. These vehicles have been in service in Iraq since October 2003, supporting two 3,900-soldier Stryker Brigade Combat Team rotations and accumulating over 6 million miles. The vehicles maintained an operational readiness rate above 95% throughout their deployment in Iraq. This contracted reset work is slated to begin in mid-November at General Dynamics Canada in London, Ontario (75%), Fort Lewis, WA (19%), and Sterling Heights, MI (6%), and is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2006.
