RESTON, Va. — Northrop Grumman Corp. and Oshkosh Corp. have chosen Plasan, a developer and manufacturer of add-on armor systems, to assist with the design and engineering of the armor for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program.
The U.S. Department of Defense plans to use the JLTV for the Army and Marine Corps.
If selected by the Department of Defense, Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector will be the prime contractor and systems integrator. Oshkosh's Defense Group will be responsible for designing, engineering and manufacturing the vehicle, including the armor system.
The JLTV program requires integrated armor protection and the ability to incorporate add-on armor kits.
