Force Dynamics was recently awarded an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for the M-ATV Cheetah, a lightweight, high-mobility vehicle, by the Army’s Tank-automotive and Armaments Command. The deal establishes an initial order for three vehicles for testing and evaluation, but also enables Force Dynamics to compete for future M-ATV vehicle orders.
Previously, the company manufactured two Production Representative Vehicles (PRVs) to undergo initial survivability and mobility screening. During this new phase, Force Dynamics will deliver additional PRVs for continued testing.
The Army has indicated that if an M-ATV vehicle submission can meet all of the inspection requirements, survivability threshold and mobility tests, that the vehicle will be given a “fair opportunity” for selection for a production delivery order.
