Ladson-based Force Protection Inc. has received a $15.4 million contract from the Marines to install modifications and perform maintenance on its Cougar vehicles. The mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicles will receive spall liner blanket kits and modernization safety kits as well as general maintenance.
The work, which will be done by 43 field service representatives over in Iraq, is scheduled to be completed by June of 2011.
Charleston Regional Business Journal has the report.
