Frank Vigus, Program Manager-Equipment for the JIEDDO Center of Excellence (JCOE) at Fort Irwin, California, said that, until March 2007, JERRVs were available for training, but they have since been identified as theater requirements.
We look forward to expanding our successful maintenance and logistical network of assets to support our customers and their fleet of JERRV
and specialized vehicles," said Eugene C.
In addition to our September vehicle deliveries, we have also verified the successful integration of improved materials such as domestic steel for the JERRV and Buffalo vehicles," said Vice President for Program Management Damon Walsh.
We are currently ahead of schedule in deliveries of the Cougar JERRV and are on track with our Buffalo and ILAV programs.
We again met objectives for the Buffalo MPCV, and although we were one Cougar JERRV
short of our expected output for July, we've made the necessary adjustments that will enable us to hit our goals in the fall.
