General Dynamics Awarded $62.5 Million for Abrams Integrated Management Materials

Category: Contracts


STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. --- The U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, a $62.5 million contract for the material associated with the production of 75 Abrams Integrated Management (AIM) tanks.

Initial funding authorized under the contract was $31.25 million. AIM is a joint effort to refurbish M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks involving the U.S. Army Project Manager for Combat Systems; the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command; its Anniston Army Depot, Anniston, Ala.; and General Dynamics Land Systems.

Under the AIM program, M1A1 Abrams tanks are completely disassembled and overhauled to a like-new condition. Refurbished AIM tanks incur lower operational and support costs and report higher operational readiness rates. Work will be performed in Lima, Ohio, and Eynon, Pa., by existing General Dynamics employees. The 75 AIM tanks are scheduled for delivery to U.S. Army units beginning in July 2006.
