Yeeee-haaaaaa! H. Koch & Sons Co. in Anaheim, CA received a $20 million firm-fixed-price contract for the improved Humvee vehicle restraint systems. H. Koch was a luggage company in the early 1900s, but now specializes in high performance aircrew restraints for ejection seats, parachute canopy releases, et. al. A fleet of custom 007 Humvees probably aren’t on the way, but the lessons learned undoubtedly transfer. Work will be performed in Anaheim, CA, and is expected to be complete by Nov. 4, 2007. This was a sole-source contract initiated on Oct. 24, 2005 by the Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren, MI (W56HZV-06-C-0052).
