BAE Systems Wins $10.8 Million Order for Bradley Survivability Seats

PHOENIX, Ari­zona — BAE Sys­tems has received a $10.8 mil­lion award from SSI Tech­nol­o­gy, Inc. to pro­vide Advanced Sur­viv­abil­i­ty Seats for Bradley Fight­ing Vehi­cles used by the U.S. Army. The spe­cial­ly designed seats – called Sur­vivor Post Mount 1000 and Sur­vivor Mod­u­lar Troop 3000 – include an ener­gy-absorb­ing tech­nol­o­gy to pro­tect sol­diers and oth­er warfight­ers.

“This tech­nol­o­gy helps decrease the poten­tial for spinal injuries that may result from the shock of a blast,” said Frank Crispino, direc­tor of vehi­cle pro­tec­tion pro­grams at BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions. “The seat and restraint sys­tem are inte­gral com­po­nents of the over­all vehi­cle sur­viv­abil­i­ty capa­bil­i­ty to pro­tect occu­pants from blasts and oth­er threats.”

The order builds upon BAE Sys­tems’ strong his­to­ry of per­for­mance, as the com­pa­ny has pro­vid­ed more than 1,900 Bradley seats since 2009. The lat­est upgrades are in asso­ci­a­tion with the Bradley Advanced Sur­viv­abil­i­ty Seats – Dri­ver pro­gram and will be applied to a por­tion of the Army’s Bradley Urban Sur­viv­abil­i­ty Kit pro­gram.

The work will be per­formed at BAE Sys­tems’ facil­i­ty in Phoenix, Ariz., with deliv­er­ies begin­ning this May and con­clud­ing in June 2013. There are approx­i­mate­ly 450 employ­ees in Phoenix, where the com­pa­ny has been pro­vid­ing occu­pant safe­ty prod­ucts for more than 30 years.

As a leader in sur­viv­abil­i­ty sys­tems for land, air and naval appli­ca­tions, BAE Sys­tems is devel­op­ing life­sav­ing prod­ucts to pro­tect occu­pants, includ­ing crash­wor­thy seat­ing sys­tems; ceram­ic and trans­par­ent armor tech­nolo­gies; inte­grat­ed vehi­cle armor sys­tems; vehi­cle and air­craft sur­viv­abil­i­ty com­po­nents and acces­sories; as well as sol­dier pro­tec­tion equip­ment used around the world.

BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions, based in Rockville, Md., pro­vides a range of prod­ucts and ser­vices to meet needs in readi­ness and sus­tain­ment and oper­a­tional sup­port across the land, avi­a­tion, mar­itime and C4ISR domains, sup­port­ing the U.S. Depart­ment of Defense and fed­er­al agen­cies. Sup­port Solu­tions is also a lead­ing non-nuclear ship repair, mod­ern­iza­tion and con­ver­sion com­pa­ny, serv­ing the U.S. Navy and oth­er mar­itime cus­tomers.
