Point Blank Enterprises, Inc. (PBE) confirms the successful completion of all contracted deliverables for the US Army's OMFV Phase 2 program to provide a preliminary design for a next generation tracked combat vehicle. PBE continues to refine and perfect the design, as proposed, for the follow-on detailed design phase of the program. The PBE OMFV began as an unencumbered "clean-sheet" soldier centric concept that continues to progress in a fully digital engineering environment where the benefits of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and a Modular Open Systems Architecture (MOSA) can be fully realized.
"The U.S. Army's multi-phase OMFV acquisition strategy provided a unique opportunity for an industry innovator, like Point Blank, to contribute by bringing together practical innovation, advanced digital engineering tools and an open collaboration with the government," said PBE Executive Vice President, Mark Edwards. "We believe that Point Blank's OMFV fully compliant design delivers the best value and most balanced integration of desired capabilities in a next generation combat vehicle design that can rapidly integrate future technologies and enable a two-soldier crew to operate decisively in the ever-increasing complexity of a multi-domain battle space."
PBE's OMFV team of subcontractors is a mixture of large and small industry subject matter experts, innovative non-traditional large and small businesses, and 8(a) small-disadvantaged businesses.
