M3A3 Bradley DRS Optronics Inc. in Palm Bay, FL received a delivery order amount of $15.8M as part of a $26.9 million firm-fixed-price contract for the Improved Bradley Acquisition System (IBAS). DID has covered and explained the IBAS targeting enhancements before, though that contract was a direct purchase by Bradley Maker United Defense LP (now BAE Systems Land & Armament) for inclusion in the digitized M2A3 and M3A3 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles. Work will be performed in Palm Bay, FL (90%), and Dallas, TX (10%), and is expected to be completed by Aug. 30, 2008. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. There were two bids solicited on Jan. 22, 2004, and one bid was received. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, AL issued the contract (W31P4Q-05-D-0026).
