The Army is conducting market research on new and emerging technologies available for testing on the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle, according to a recent notice.

"As part of its on-going market research efforts, five (5) AMPV prototype vehicles are available for inspection or bailment in order to determine the potential for achieving improvements in the areas of mobility; lethality; survivability; logistics; and command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR)," a July 11 Federal Business Opportunities notice states.

The service is also seeking technologies that would reduce the vehicle's life-cycle cost, according to the notice.

The AMPV, built by BAE Systems, is now in low-rate initial production, following two contract modifications worth a total of $575 million awarded this year.
