    U.S. Army Awards BAE Systems $148.3 Million Contract for M88A2 HERCULES Armored Recovery Vehicles

    October 9, 2019 - BAE Systems has been awarded a $148.3 million contract by the U.S. Army to upgrade 43 M88A1 heavy-lift vehicles for added capability to evacuate damaged or stranded combat vehicles from the battlefield. This continues the upgrade of the M88A1 to the M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift System (HERCULES) configuration to increase power, maneuverability and survivability to reach the Army's acquisition objective of 933 M88A2 vehicles. This press release features multimedia.

(Photo: BAE Systems) “The HERCULES is an invaluable vehicle for the Army's recovery missions,” said Dennis Hancock, director of Recovery Programs at BAE Systems. “We are proud to support the Army's recovery needs and we will continue to work alongside the Army to provide upgraded solutions as their missions and requirements change.” The more capable M88A2 tows, hoists, and winches 70-ton tracked vehicles used by the Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT). The M88A2 increases horsepower and upgraded armor protection including armored track skirts and applique armor panels. The M88A2 can maneuver more quickly and get a 70 ton stranded vehicle – and its crew – to safety. The execution of this contract will increase the total procured quantity of the M88A2 capability to 914. Work on the program will be performed at the BAE Systems' facilities in York, Pennsylvania; Aiken, South Carolina; Anniston, Alabama and Sterling Heights, Michigan. Deliveries are to begin in February of 2021. View source version on businesswire.com: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20191009005137/en/

    Congress wants to create ‘cyber first responders’

    By: Chloe Rogers House lawmakers passed a bill June 10 that would require the establishment of permanent “cyber incident teams” to help protect both federal agencies and the private sector from cyberattacks. The Department of Homeland Security Cyber Incident Response Teams Act would create permanent teams of cybersecurity specialists within DHS that the government and industry could call on to help them recover from network breaches. “When cyberattacks occur, immediate expertise is needed to mitigate damage and ensure organizations are restored,” the bill's primary sponsor Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said. “Cyber incident response teams provide that expertise and function as our cyber first responders.” The teams, which will be housed under the DHS's National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, could also include cybersecurity experts from the private sector as members. McCaul said the bill fosters “collaboration between the public and private sector to ensure that our nation can continue to adapt to the constant changes in the cyber landscape.” Reps. John Katko, R-N.Y.; Jim Langevin, D-R.I.; John Ratcliffe, R-Texas; and Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., also sponsored the bill. The House bill was introduced in February as companion legislature to the bipartisan DHS Cyber Hunt and Incident Response Teams Act introduced by Sens. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio. The Senate version of the bill was approved by Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in April. https://www.fifthdomain.com/congress/capitol-hill/2019/06/12/congres
