“These upgrades greatly improve the survivability of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. Our joint US Government/BAE Systems Team Bradley continues to work to keep Soldiers safe while being a good steward to the American public by providing BUSK III in both a time and cost efficient manner,” said John G. Tile, director of Bradley programs, BAE Systems.

In an article for Army.mil, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Glenn Dean who serves as product manager for Bradley said that the joint USG /BAE Systems BUSK III installation team applied approximately 2,400 total Modification Work Order (MWOs) and repairs on 236 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, finishing a month earlier than projected and 20 percent under budget -- constituting roughly $700,000 in savings.

The BUSK III, conceived by U.S. Army commanders in the field (designed and built by BAE System in Santa Clara, CA, and York, PA respectively), allows the U.S. Army's Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle to better adapt to the rigors of urban combat. BUSK III incorporates four modifications including a blast-proof fuel cell, a blast resistant driver seat, a turret survivability system and an emergency ramp release.

The recent BUSK MWO in Korea began in January 2012, under BAE Systems Technical Support contract.

The next scheduled stop for the team is Ft. Carson, Colo., where the 4th Infantry Division’s Bradleys will undergo the BUSK III installation.
