BAE Systems has been awarded a $7 million firm-fixed-price contract to supply the Army with additional TRIGR laser target locator modules. The award will provide for the modification of an existing contract to procure the innovative units, which help soldiers determine target coordinates quickly and accurately in the battlefield.
The TRIGR system weighs less than 5.5 pounds and provides mission-critical capability in a single, lightweight package, combining functions of several pieces of equipment carried by the soldiers. Removing weight from soliders’ packs makes their jobs easier, enabling them to complete their missions day or night, even in poor visibility conditions, faster and with greater precision.
Work under this contract will be performed in Nashua, New Hampshire, with an estimated completion date of Feb. 17, 2014. The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
