Teledyne Brown Engineering Awarded Future Combat Systems (FCS) Subcontract for $1.5 million
Takes Advantage of Strategic Strengths in Modeling and Simulation
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama (September 10, 2004) - Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc. (TBE) today announced it was awarded a $1.5 million subcontract from Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] to help develop and demonstrate a Multifunction Utility/Logistics and Equipment Vehicle (MULE) for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. As part of the subcontract, Teledyne Brown will use its expertise in modeling and simulation in support of Lockheed Martin's development, demonstration, validation and verification of systems level planning, activities, accreditation, and documentation on the MULE.
The MULE, one of several unmanned vehicles being developed under the FCS program, will be used as a transport vehicle to carry supplies that are traditionally carried by soldiers. The vision of the FCS program is to use the latest technologies and systems to develop a "Future Force" which will be lighter, agile, and more responsive to tactical and strategic requirements.
"Teledyne Brown is honored to be among the companies helping the Army achieve its vision for the future," said James M. Link, president, Teledyne Brown Engineering. "We look forward to working closely with Lockheed Martin on this key Army initiative. The MULE takes advantage of many of Teledyne Brown's core strengths, especially our modeling and simulation capabilities. This contract award serves to validate those strengths."
In addition to developing new manned and unmanned vehicles, the FCS program also calls for construction of a network that will connect the vehicles and sensors with existing military infrastructure. .
