BAE-Navistar finishes review
WEST POINT — BAE Systems, through its U.S. Combat Systems line of business, and teammate Navistar Defense, LLC, have successfully completed the critical design review (CDR) for the U.S. multi-service Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program.
The CDR was completed as part of BAE Systems’ 27-month JLTV technology development contract received in Oct. 2008. The CDR marks the completion of the design process and the start of vehicle integration, assembly, test and checkout activities to deliver test vehicles to the government by May 2010.
The BAE Systems-Navistar team has developed two JLTV prototypes for internal testing that have provided valuable information being used in the CDR. The company is incorporating this information to put forward the best possible offering that meets program requirements. The JLTV design also incorporates lessons learned from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program and features the latest in lightweight, advanced armor and a V-shaped hull design to provide unmatched crew protection.
The team builds off the two companies’ current leadership in armored and tactical vehicle development and support. Combined, the BAE Systems-Navistar team maximizes JLTV program value through proven capabilities, lean manufacturing and extensive worldwide logistics support.
The BAE Systems-Navistar team draws on top talent from across the country. Sites participating in the development include the operations in West Point in East Mississippi.
