Technical development completed for introduction of all required optional items to meet 4QFY07 AAFES introduction and FY09 clothing bag items. Shade standard must be established for the optional poly/wool shirt fabric. Burlington’s closure of its Hurt, VA finishing plant and movement to Raeford, NC delaying submission of Gray 510 poly/wool shirt fabric for shade evaluation.

Supply Requirements Packages (SRPs) for Government furnished AB 450 and AB 451 fabric and ASU clothing bag uniform items were submitted to DSCP in Jan-Feb 07. SRPs must be modified to change yearly quantities to match available DRMD 903 upfront funding for new item introduction. Availability of FY07 funding for DMRD 903 bill means FY09 ASU procurement by DSCP will match current FY07 availability of Army Green Uniform. The fit test at Ft Jackson ,SC (16 Oct – 3 Nov 06) and at Ft Lee, VA (5-9 Nov 06 is concluded) Active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard Soldiers were fit into the ASU to validate changes made to garment patterns, and validate men’s athletic fit sizes.

It was too green. Burlington reps visited Natick on 18 Jan 07 to review their submission. Burlington discovered that they were not using the correct poly/cotton shirt shade sample, which PM-CIE provided to them, as their target shade. Burlington reassessing submission plan.

9 Fire Resistant Clothing Update
Army Aviation Combat Uniform (A2CU) DSCP to handle requirement Improved Combat Vehicle Crewmen Coverall (iCVC) FR Combat Shirt More compatible with body armor – issued in lieu of ACU top Based on Urgent requirement fro OIF/OEF Army contract FR ACU Southern Mills “Defender” Fabric Supply Request Package submitted to DSCP Fire Resistant Environmental Ensemble Skin out layered system Focused on Mounted and Air Soldier Solicitation posted on FedBizOpps 27 Feb 07 A2CU and iCVC: Transitioning current DSCP contracts from iABDU to A2CU and CVC to iCVC Determining final design configurations based on user evaluation feedback Authorizing Abrams as an alternative fabric on the iCVC. Decision Point on Abrams for A2CU is APR 07 Army will contract for limited production of these two items to bridge DSCP’s migration to these new versions. FR Combat Shirt: Nothing additional FR ACU: Expected demand is around 380,000 right now. DSCP expected to convert some of the ACU contracts. Fabric selected contains NO Nomex FREE: Comprehensive FR layered clothing system worn with either the iCVC or A2CU. Industry will submit complete systems or individual items and results to specified bench tests 3-phase down selection Lab Test results will allow for contracts with the top 3 performing systems. Will order 50 sets of each. Human Factors evaluation will narrow to 2 systems. Will order 500 of each. User Evaluation will select the final system and configuration. Initial Army order subject to funding but target is 300,000 sets over 5 years. Specific FREE items (all FR): Next to Skin Layer--t-shirt, male and female undergarments, sports bra, long sleeve shirt and pant Mid weight underlayer–long sleeve shirt and pant Socks Light weather outer—softshell or windshirt-like top and bottom Intermediate weather outer layer—integrated softshell/fleece jacket, pant and vest Extreme weather outerlayer—Oversized parka with removable liner. Doubles as system rain jacket. Balaclava—both hot and cold weather versions Cold weather flyer’s glove FR continues to be an Army priority

10 R&D Investment Plan Hydration Improved Textiles Eye Protection
Purification Cooling NBC Protection Improved Textiles Fire Resistant Durability Integration of Electronics Multi-Function (NBC, bug repellent, anti-microbial) Eye Protection Laser Transition Lenses Improved Ballistics and comfort Parachutes Static line personnel airdrop Military Free Fall Parachutes Ancillary Equipment These are the areas in which we expect to invest R&D dollars over the course of the POM.
