Battelle will begin transforming Toyota’s Land Cruiser 200 series standard SUVs into specialized armored vehicles for the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) under a new contract award.

Over the past decade, Battelle has steadily built its specialty automotive manufacturing capabilities at facilities on the west side of Columbus, Ohio, building hundreds of armored vehicles for select Department of Defense customers.

Under a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) awarded last year by the Department of State, Battelle recently won a BPA call to build 229 armored Land Cruisers. Delivery of the vehicles is scheduled to begin in March 2022 and be completed in June 2023.

“Battelle has a proven track record of performing sophisticated systems integration for military and commercial applications,” said George Lecakes, vice president and general manager for Battelle’s national security business. “Under this contract, our ground systems team will execute on its custom designs and integrate complex systems to meet mission requirements–at a competitive cost.”

Battelle takes existing commercial vehicles, re-engineers them with protective armor and enhances performance by redesigning and installing stronger suspensions for operations in rugged terrain and enhanced power systems to meet the needs of the upgraded system.

Battelle has a long history of helping the U.S. government with protective vehicles, all the way back to its work on tank armor in World War II. Since 2013, Battelle has transformed hundreds of standard pickup trucks and SUVs into specialty armored vehicles for U.S. Special Operations Command. Prior to its current work on vehicles, Battelle armored High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicles, more commonly called Humvees. Battelle also trained military personnel and contractors to install protective armor kits onto existing vehicles.

2021年8月9日发布

俄亥俄州哥伦布市(2021年8月9日)伯特立根据一份新的合同,丰田将开始将陆地巡洋舰200系列标准suv改装为美国国务院外交安全服务(DSS)的专门装甲车辆。

在过去十年中,巴特尔在俄亥俄州哥伦布西侧的工厂稳步建立了其专业汽车制造能力,为国防部的部分客户制造了数百辆装甲车。

根据美国国务院去年授予的一项全面采购协议(BPA),巴特尔最近赢得了一个制造229辆装甲陆地巡洋舰的BPA要求。车辆交付计划于2022年3月开始,并于2023年6月完成。

巴特尔公司国家安全业务副总裁兼总经理George Lecakes表示:“巴特尔公司在军事和商业应用中具有成熟的系统集成能力。“根据该合同,我们的地面系统团队将以具有竞争力的成本执行其定制设计,并集成复杂系统,以满足任务需求。”

巴特尔利用现有的商用车辆,重新设计防护装甲,并通过重新设计和安装更坚固的悬挂来提高性能,以便在崎岖的地形下作业,并增强动力系统,以满足升级系统的需求。

巴特尔在帮助美国政府提供保护车辆方面有着悠久的历史,可以追溯到第二次世界大战期间的坦克装甲工作。自2013年以来,巴特尔已经将数百辆标准皮卡和suv改装为美国特种作战司令部的特种装甲车辆。在目前的车辆工作之前,巴特尔装甲高机动多用途轮式车辆,通常称为悍马。巴特尔还训练军事人员和承包商在现有车辆上安装防护装甲套件。
