Marines turn to General Dynamics for IED countermeasure system

The Marine Corps has awarded General Dynamics Corp. a $289 million contract to design an electronic, remote-controlled countermeasure system against improvised explosive devices.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract also funds logistic, technical and field support for high-powered, remote-controlled IED jamming systems.

General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products of Charlotte, N.C., will perform the work in Burlington, Vt., Hanahan, S.C., and Sterling Heights, Mich. Med-Eng Systems Inc. of Ottawa is the key subcontractor and will perform nearly half of the work, mostly in Wisconsin. General Dynamics expects to complete the work by July.
