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.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
