DEW Engineering and Development will provide ceramic composite hull armour kits for the US Army’s Stryker armoured vehicles under a $39.5m contract from General Dynamics Land Systems Canada.

Under the contract the company will supply ceramic composite hull armour kits for 352 Stryker armoured vehicles, which are used by the army in Iraq and Afghanistan operations.

The DEW hull armour kit is a crucial component of the Stryker survivability package and has been successfully qualified under operational conditions.

Manufacturing of the armour kits will be carried out at the company’s Miramichi facility. The kits will then be shipped off and attached to the Stryker vehicles.

Deliveries of the kits are expected to begin in February 2010.
