Companies net $50 million in Future Combat Systems subcontracts

The team of lead integrators for the Army's Future Combat Systems program has awarded 46 subcontracts worth more than $50 million to vendors, suppliers and integrators, Boeing Co. of Chicago and Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego announced Oct. 24.

Among the winners are Northrop Grumman Corp., Los Angeles; General Dynamics Corp., Fall Church, Va.; BAE Systems Plc, Farnborough, U.K.; Raytheon Co., Lexington, Mass.; and TRW Inc., Cleveland.

In addition to integrators, small research companies, defense contractors and Carnegie Mellon University also won subcontracts.

"One of our key roles, as the lead systems integrator during the development phase, has been to bring on board the right partners for the program. It is absolutely critical to the success of FCS to have the right domain experts as part of the team," said Jerry McElwee, Boeing vice president and FCS program manager.

The FCS program is overseen by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Army. In March, Boeing and SAIC won a $154 million contract to execute the development phase of the FCS program.

The contract covers a two-year concept and technology demonstration phase in which the team will build prototypes of mobile armored vehicles with networked communications capabilities. If successful, the agreement may lead to work worth $4 billion over the next five years.
