EFSS Concept(click to view full) General Dynamics Ordnance & Tactical Systems in Saint Petersburg, FL was recently awarded $8.2 million for delivery order 0001 under a previously awarded cost-plus-fixed-fee contract (M67854-05-D-6014) to prepare low rate initial production (LRIP) and full rate production for the Expeditionary Fire Support System/ Internally Transportable Vehicle. The ITV is designed to fit the V-22 Osprey‘s limited internal dimensions; it has come in for some criticism for its cost and capabilities. Work will be performed in St. Petersburg, FL (75%); Ocala, FL (10%); and Robbins, NC (15%), and is expected to be complete by May 2007. This contract was competitively procured with 3 proposals solicited and 3 offers received by the Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, VA.
