Vinghog awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for an Improved Crew Served Weapons Mount

Vinghog AS, Tonsberg, Norway, is being awarded an $8,443,895 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for an Improved Crew Served Weapons Mount (ICSWM) for the MK47 Advanced Lightweight Grenade Launcher (ALGL).

Vinghog AS, Tonsberg, Norway, is being awarded an $8,443,895 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for an Improved Crew Served Weapons Mount (ICSWM) for the MK47 Advanced Lightweight Grenade Launcher (ALGL).

The ICSW Mount, with adapters, will be used with other fielded machine guns such as the M2 and M240 machine guns. This project will evaluate a soft-mount for Special Operations Forces (SOF) crew served weapons such as the MK47 MOD 0 ALGL and machine guns.

It is envisioned that the ICSWM will improve accuracy when firing on the move, resulting in less dispersion and reducing the amount of ammunition required to defeat targets.

The ICSWM mount program will test the soft-mount technology to verify that it does improve the performance of the MK47 Weapon System in accordance with objective joint Operational Requirements Document.

Work will be performed in Tonsberg, Norway, and is expected to be completed by November 2011. Contract funding in the amount of $8,443,895 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The contract was competitively procured and advertised on the Internet, with one offer received. The Naval Surface Warfare Centre, Crane Division, Crane, Ind., is the contracting activity (N00164-07-D-4883).
