An Oshkosh Corp. (NYSE: OSK) company has won a more than $77 million contract to reconfigure the U.S. Army’s mine resistant ambush protected vehicles in an effort to keep the fleet mission-ready.

Oshkosh Defense LLC works to inspect the vehicle’s condition and configuration, complete the needed repairs and replacements, and install upgrade kits in each MRAP variant, Oshkosh said Thursday.

John Bryant, senior vice president of defense programs at Oshkosh Defense, said the M-ATV reset program aims to provide mission-ready vehicles with updated protection and technologies to soldiers.

The upgrade kits consist of the underbody improvement, automatic fire extinguishing systems and safety-related updates.

Oshkosh is delivering the vehicles through September 2015 and lifecycle services through July 2018.

The company was awarded a base contract on Aug. 6, 2014, to reset 500 MRAP vehicles and three additional options on Dec. 12, 2014, for 100 vehicles each.
