KONGSBERG Awarded Contract from GDLS Supporting US Army Stryker ECP Program

Category: Contracts

Kongsberg Integrated Tactical Systems (KITS) has been awarded a contract from General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) for the supply of the Commanderís and Driverís smart displays for the US Army Stryker Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) Program.

GDLS, headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, selected KITS as the supplier of the Driverís Situational Awareness Display (DSAD) and the Commanderís Situational Awareness Display (CSAD) on May 28, 2013. The contract includes design, development, fabrication, test and performance of the DSAD and CSAD for the Stryker ECP Program. Serial production of the displays will be conducted at the Kongsberg facility in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Stryker is a family of eight-wheel-drive combat vehicles, built for the US Army by GDLS. The Stryker ECP Program is managed by the Armyís Project Manager, Stryker Brigade Combat Team which is under the leadership of the Program Executive Office for Ground Combat Systems (PEO GCS.) PEO GCS is based at the US Army Tank Automotive Command (TACOM) LCMC, in Warren, Michigan.

"This highly competitive bid for the CSAD and DSAD was a perfect fit for KITS, whose CORTEX Displays meet or exceed the most demanding maritime and combat vehicle requirements. Extremely rugged and waterproof, the high resolution CORTEX displays also feature a high contrast ratio, which not only reduces viewer fatigue but makes them the most sunlight readable displays on the market today," Says Mr. Åsmund Groven, President of KITS.

The CORTEX smart displays that will be used for the CSAD and DSAD feature an on-board processor and additional I/O ports for both data and video.
