Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 19, 2007, AeroVironment, Inc. (AV) was awarded a $19.3 million order by the U.S. Marine Corps for Battlefield Air Targeting Micro Air Vehicle (BATMAV) systems, spares and support services.  Each BATMAV system consists of two Wasp III micro air vehicles, a ground control system, and operators kit.

The Marine Corps will procure the BATMAV systems through a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract awarded to AV by the U.S. Air Force in December 2006 to acquire and field BATMAV systems to meet the small unit’s need for real-time reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition and battle damage assessment.  The contract provides for purchases of up to $45 million over the term of the contract, including procurement of micro air vehicle integration efforts, AV’s Wasp III micro air vehicle, ground control systems, initial spares, training and sustainment under the Air Force Beyond Line of Site (BLOS) program of record.

The development and integration phase of the contract was completed under a cost-plus fixed-fee arrangement in October 2007.  In November 2007, the Marine Corps signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Air Force to procure systems under the BATMAV contract.  The Marine Corps’ order brings the total current funded value of the BATMAV contract to $22.6 million.
