U.S. Army taps Automation Alley for $1.6M in contracts

Automation Alley has received $1.6 million in new business from the U.S. Army to help find local manufacturers to build specialty parts for military equipment.

"The Army needs help finding these manufacturers," says Dan Raubinger, director of defense and manufacturing for Automation Alley.

The first work directive is a reverse engineering project for the Small Unit Support Vehicle spanning a 12-month period. The second work directive spans 18 months and consists of two sustainment engineering initiatives, one for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle  family and the other for the Light Tactical Vehicle family, which includes the well-known High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle or "Humvee" family of vehicles.

The components of these vehicles are becoming obsolete and are no longer supported by the original equipment manufacturer. Automation Alley is looking for suppliers and small businesses capable of supplying replacement parts for them.
