The initial $11.5 million delivery order will provide Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) over a 32-month period. Additionally, there are three production options (for a total of up to 36 months) with a contract ceiling price of $92.2 million.

LAMPS is a modernization program that will provide more mobile, reliable and logistically supportable tactical electric power sources for the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD) 21st century digitized forces.
