BAE Systems’ Next Generation Bradley Fighting Vehicle demonstrator is debuting today at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. The concept vehicle features an upgraded chassis that allows for significantly increased underbelly protection, improved force protection for mounted troops, compartmentation of fuel and ordnance, and more space and electrical power for future technology growth.
“In the current budget environment, the Army often has to choose between maintaining an existing fleet and developing new capabilities,” said Deepak Bazaz, director of Artillery and Bradley Programs at BAE Systems. “We’re investing in research and development to demonstrate cost-effective options for the Army to address current gaps. We’re focused on integrating current, emerging, and future technologies to significantly improve the Bradley’s mobility, force protection, and lethality.
