WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Three Wisconsin companies will share over $62 million worth of defense contracts. 

The MTEC Corporation of Janesville has been awarded $25 million for grenade testing and ammunition. The firm was the only one to take part in the Army's online bidding process. 

Also, the Oshkosh Corporation has been awarded another $20 million to provide logistics support and upgraded armor for about 430 Marine vehicles in Okinawa Japan. 

The third contract went DRS Power and Control Technologies. The firm's Milwaukee plant will provide design and engineering services for energy storage modules at a cost of just over $17 million.
