- British engineering company Meggitt said it had been awarded a contract from General Dynamics Land Systems to provide the auxiliary cooling and power system for the US Army's Abrams tank Program. The contract was worth up to $37m.

Meggitt's system would provide both auxiliary cooling and exportable power to the tank with the main turbine engine shut down.

To date, Meggitt has produced over 2,480 thermal management systems for the Abrams Program, which provide active cooling to Abrams upgraded electronics and crew.
