Boeing Teams with SAIC on Ground Combat Vehicle Proposal

The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has teamed with Science Applications International Corporation [NYSE: SAI] on a proposal for the U.S. Army's Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) program.

SAIC will be the prime on the team, with Boeing, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall Defence as subcontractors. The team's offering draws from the experience gained from the Manned Ground Vehicle and the Puma programs and will be built in the United States with a team of experienced American small and mid-tier supplier businesses.

"SAIC has pulled together an outstanding team to answer the Army's requirement for a modern infantry fighting vehicle," said Charles Toups, Network and Tactical Systems (N&TS) vice president and general manager. "We have a unique offering that brings forward mature technologies at the system and sub-system levels. Boeing brings technology and expertise from its background in weapons systems development and integration to the ground environment to give soldiers next-generation precision engagement, for both lethal and non-lethal weapons. Collectively, our team will give the U.S. Army a combat vehicle that is ready sooner and has an adaptable design that will evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of the American warfighter, throughout its projected 20-plus year lifecycle."
