NEW YORK, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Westwood, a division of L-3 Communications, has received a U.S. Army contract to design and manufacture advanced 100 kW and 200 kW generator sets.
The Large Advanced Mobile Power Sources will replace 100 kW and 200 kW Military-Standard generator sets and provide improved tactical electric power to combat, combat support and combat service support units.
The award engineering and manufacturing development portion of the award is for a 32-month period. There are also three one-year production options. If all options are exercised, the value of the contract would be $92.2 million.
"We are excited that Westwood has been selected to design the next generation of LAMPS, which will support our troops for years to come," said Robert E. Leskow, president of L-3's Marine and Power Systems Group.
"We look forward to providing the U.S. Army with a quality product and to working together as a team on this vital effort.
"This is another example of how L-3 is providing fuel-efficient power generation solutions to the U.S. Army."
