The U.S. Army has awarded the Critical Solutions International (CSI) a contract to support the Husky 2G Vehicle-Mounted Mine Detection.
This contract, with an estimated value of $35,6 million, provides an enduring mechanism for both U.S. and international foreign military sales (FMS) customers to purchase C-IED vehicles, equipment, spare parts, and training at pre-negotiated commercial prices. This opportunity also enables a rapid response to the growing international demand for proven route clearance and C-IED capabilities provided by CSI and its industry partners.
Work will be performed in Charleston, South Carolina, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 30, 2022.
The Husky is a counter explosive hazard system that provides standoff detection and marking of metallic and low-metallic surface-laid, shallow-buried antitank landmines, trigger mechanisms and deep buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in support of area access route clearance operations.
The Husky is like the blood hound of the pack. This is the vehicle that will travel out in front of the rest, and look for the hidden dangers. The husky is designed to take an explosion. The front and rear will just fall apart; while the middle, where the single occupant is, will be safe.
The Husky is responsible for saving an indiscriminate number of lives on its mission up and down the supply routes in hostile areas, because of its ability to find threats.
