Boeing Teams with SAIC on Ground Combat Vehicle Proposal

ST. LOUIS — 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.”
