Exelis received two international orders totalling to $58 million for radios, installation kits and spare parts

The first order is valued at $28 million to provide an existing international customer with additional communications equipment, spare parts and ancillary devices.

Communications equipment acquired under the contract includes the SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System), with installation kits and spares to support the system.

"This order is from a long-standing international customer who recognizes not only the robustness of the SINCGARS radio, but also the technological upgrades that have kept it on the cutting edge of battlefield communications," said Ken Harrison, the vice president and general manager of the Exelis Night Vision & Communications Solutions' international business area.

The second order is for $30 million to provide an existing international customer single and dual vehicular radios systems along with installation kits and dismounted soldier radio systems.

Under the contract, Exelis will deliver the SINCGARS system for installation in a wide variety of military vehicles.

Production of the radios for this international contract will take place at the Exelis Fort Wayne, Indiana, facility.
