Artis has secured a potential $32 million contractÂ to integrate and characterize aÂ company-builtÂ active protection system onto aÂ fighting vehicle ofÂ the U.S. Army.
The company said WednesdayÂ it aims to demonstrate the performance of the Iron Curtain APSÂ inÂ multiple scenarios under the first phase of the contract.
The Army can also request for additional testing and low-risk development effortsÂ based on needs, available funds and program progress, Artis added.
