The Army plans to award a $122.2 million contract to Israel-based IMI Systems and General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems to put the Iron Fist non-developmental active protection system on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, according to a recent notice.

A May 21 industry notice states the service expects to award in January 2020 the contract for 154 systems, 14 maintenance kits and 2,484 countermeasures in response to an urgent need in Europe.

The Army Requirements Oversight Council late last year approved Iron Fist to move forward for initial production and additional testing, as Inside Defense reported.
