BAE Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems signed a memorandum of understanding to work collaboratively in support of the U.S. Army’s Heavy Brigade Combat Team modernization plan, which will upgrade, modernize, and achieve commonality on BAE Systems’ family of Bradley fighting vehicles and General Dynamics’ M1 Abrams tanks, the primary vehicles of the Army’s heavy brigades. The agreement defines how both companies will work together to jointly translate warfighter requirements into capabilities through collaborative design and development of common solutions. It also establishes the basic process for collaborative specification and product development, as well as provisions for the common procurement of material to support system evolution on both companies’ combat vehicles.
