BAE Systems opened a new facility in Austin, TX, for the production of armor kits to protect U.S. Army ground vehicles. The 33,000-ft² (3065-m²) facility is expected to allow the company to build its L-ROD bar-armor kits faster and at lower cost. The company is under contract with the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command and the Marine Corps Systems Command, with orders totaling $34 million. BAE Systems plans to manufacture L-ROD kits on a new, automated production line. The facility currently employs about half a dozen people, and about 30 more will be added this year.
