BAE to Provide 50 Staff to Upgrade MRAP Vehicles in Afghanistan

BAE Systems has received a $21.9 million contract from the U.S. Marine Corps to provide ongoing maintenance, repairs and updates to mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

Contract work will expand the universal maintenance workforce.

BAE will provide 48 personnel to work in Afghanistan to ensure that troops have ongoing sustained field support with the latest safety technology.

“Protecting the lives of our brave young men and women is something we take very seriously and expanding our labor force will aid in soldiers’ and Marines’ safety and success abroad, ” said Robert Houston, vice president of support and technical services at BAE Systems.
