AM General`s BRV-O Selected for Next Phase of Joint Light Tactical Vehicle Development

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- AM General’s independent proposal for the U.S. military’s new Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), was selected today for a $64.5 million Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) phase contract. AM General will produce and deliver 22 prototypes of its Blast Resistant Vehicle - Off road (BRV-O) for government testing under the EMD phase.

“We are pleased to receive this contract award for the next step in the JLTV program,” said Charles M. Hall, president and CEO of AM General. “It’s a tribute to the design, engineering and program management team that developed, built and tested BRV-O, and to the AM General workforce that has established such a great track record of supporting our military customers with innovative, affordable and dependable light tactical vehicle products and services for more than five decades. As the most experienced tactical wheeled vehicle provider in the United States, AM General is uniquely focused on meeting the needs of the U.S. armed forces and our team is prepared to move forward - shoulder-to-shoulder with our customer - on this critical national initiative. BRV-O is ready now to meet warfighter’s demands for a new light tactical vehicle.”

BRV-O is based on more than a decade of AM General investments in research, development and testing for this next-generation light tactical military vehicle. Its mobility technology, matured to meet Warfighter demands, accumulated more than 300,000 operational test miles and demonstrated high reliability and maintainability. BRV-O features a crew capsule and modular armor already proven effective in government-supervised blast testing. The BRV-O design can be readily adapted to future changes in U.S. military missions, enemy threats and new protection technologies as they emerge. BRV-O also features AM General’s lightweight, fuel efficient and high performance engine and transmis-sion powertrain; a self-leveling suspension system; a C4ISR backbone with open-standard networked architecture and clustered super-computing power; and other advanced components.
