Plasan chosen to design armor

  • 19-Jun-2008 08:58 EDT

Northrop Grumman Corp. and Oshkosh Corp. selected Plasan, a developer and manufacturer of add-on armor systems for the military and commercial market, to assist with the design and engineering of the armor for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program. The U.S. Department of Defense plans to acquire the JLTV for use by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. If selected, Northrop Grumman’s Mission Systems sector will be the prime contractor and systems integrator. Oshkosh Truck’s Defense Group will be responsible for designing, engineering, and manufacturing the vehicle, including the armor system. The JLTV program requires integrated armor protection and the ability to incorporate add-on armor kits. Oshkosh and Plasan previously partnered to develop a solution for the Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement program.
