STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded a $1.219 billion contract to produce, test, and deliver Interim Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (IM-SHORAD) systems to the U.S. Army. 

The Army's initial order on the contract calls for 28 Stryker IM-SHORAD vehicles for $230 million.

According to the company, the IM-SHORAD is designed to counter threats from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) as well as other rotary and fixed wing aircraft, and is intended to provide a common Army platform that is mobile and transportable.

The company claims that work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 30, 2025.
