British company BAE announced its U.S. Combat Systems unit, partnered with Navistar Defense, completed a critical design review as part of a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle technology development contract.
Officials say the successfully completed review advances the multi-service JLTV program out of the design phase marking a milestone for the BAE Navistar Defense team.
"This review demonstrates the BAE Systems-Navistar JLTV design is mature and balances program payload, protection and performance requirements," Mark Signorelli, BAE Systems vice president and general manager of New Vehicles and Amphibious Systems, said in a statement.
"We are pleased that our design -- built around the needs of the warfighter -- passed this significant milestone and we are looking forward to moving into the test and evaluation portion of JLTV's technology development phase."
