The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command has awarded Alcoa a $12.5 million, three-year, research, development and engineering contract to develop lightweight aluminum structures for military ground combat and tactical vehicles. This award is part of Alcoa's Army Lightweight Structures Initiative (ALSI). The contract is a follow-on to the $1.2 million the Army initially awarded Alcoa in 2004. Contract monies will be used by Alcoa's technical personnel in conjunction with the Army's Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Command (TARDEC), and through collaborative relationships with major military land vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as General Dynamics, BAE Systems, Oshkosh Truck Corp. and Stewart & Stevenson.
