L3Harris Technologies and the subsidiary of the German integrated technology group Rheinmetall, American Rheinmetall Vehicles, have signed a cooperation agreement for the joint development of the new Manned Combat Vehicle (OMFV) for the US Army. This is supposed to replace the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
This agreement combines L3Harris ‘leadership in open system design and device manufacturing with the maturity and modularity of American Rheinmetall Vehicles’ next generation Lynx combat vehicle for an easily upgradeable, low risk OMFV offering. American Rheinmetall Vehicles has selected L3Harris as prime contractor to provide vehicle mission systems, cybersecurity and the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for Lynx. L3Harris MOSA can enable cross-platform compatibility as well as sub- and subsystem domains to enable simple and inexpensive upgrades. (Antonio Ros Pau)
