The U.S. Army has chosen four companies to each submit a prototype as part of the light Robotic Combat Vehicle development competition the National Advanced Mobility Consortium manages for the service branch.

HDT Global, Oshkosh (NYSE: OSK), Textron (NYSE: TXT) and QinetiQ North America received a request for prototype proposals to proceed to the next RCV-L program phase following the down-selection process, NAMC said Friday.

Defense News reported Monday QinetiQ NA teamed up with Pratt & Miller to compete for the program and  Textron partnered with FLIR Systems (Nasdaq: FLIR) to offer the Ripsaw M5 platform to the service branch.

The Army could issue up to two contracts by the end of fiscal 2020’s second quarter for the procurement of four non-developmental RCV-L units and evaluate surrogate vehicles for one year through various tests such as manned-unmanned teaming exercises.
