The Defense Logistics Agency has chosen Elbit Systems of America to supply the Army with gunner hand stations, commander hand stations and circuit cards for the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle, Elbit announced today.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes an initial purchase order of $26 million followed by a second purchase order of $12 million, both executed over a three-year period.

The contract has a maximum value of $79 million over a five-year performance period, according to the company.

"The gunner hand stations enable crew members to target and fire accurately and work in collaboration with the commander hand stations that drive the IFV's turret and initiate signals to the turret fire control systems," a press release says. "The circuit cards provide processing and power supply to the hand station units."

"Elbit Systems of America is proud to offer critical ground vehicle modernization solutions for the U.S. Army to support accuracy and lethality for soldiers," President and CEO Raanan Horowitz said in the release. "Receiving this task order to support the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle means U.S. ground forces remain equipped at all times with the very best technology to complete their missions."
