The Army will hold a virtual industry day for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle re-compete on Dec. 17, according to a recent notice.

The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams, and attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions.

Upgraded engines for the JLTV have emerged as a priority for the follow-on contract, which is expected to last for five years with five one-year options.

The follow-on JLTV will also have new a transmission controller, battery architecture and power distribution unit, according to a presentation from a previous industry day in February.

Oshkosh Defense recently won an additional $888 million contract to build more of the existing version of the JLTV before the fiscal year 2022 re-compete.
