Meggitt Wins Further Abrams Tank Cooling Contract

Meggitt Defense Systems has won a $35.7 million contract modification of a multi-year contract for M1A2SEP Abrams thermal management systems from General Dynamics.

An additional modification valued at $6.5 million was awarded for the reset of 180 thermal management systems from vehicles returning from combat operations overseas.

The thermal management system, which includes vapour system compression and air handling units, should be delivered between April 2009 and April 2013 to support the US Army's fleet modernisation.

Meggitt’s thermal management system delivers 7kW of critical cooling for the Abrams main battle tank crew and electronics, providing comfort for the crew and enhancing the reliability of the vehicle's suite of sophisticated electronic systems. Meggitt Defense Systems developed the innovative and patent-protected system under contract from General Dynamics and has delivered over 1,300 systems, including spares, support and reset since 2000.

Dr Roger Brum, President of Meggitt Defense Systems commented: "Our team has worked closely with General Dynamics to bring the highest reliability, best value product to our ultimate customer, the US Army. We are proud that these high standards continued to be reflected in these additional contract awards."

The work will be carried out at the Meggitt Defense Systems facility in Irvine, California.
