Exelis has won a contract worth $30 million to provide an existing international customer single and dual vehicular radios systems along with installation kits and dismounted soldier radio systems.
Under this agreement, the company will deliver the RT-1702 SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System) for installation in a wide variety of military vehicles.
This fifth-generation SINCGARS capability is one half the size of the original radio, contains integrated capability improvements, and maintains a robust encryption protocol.
The radio is designed to provide voice and network data services in both mounted and dismounted configurations. In the mounted role, the radio works with the Exelis Internet controller to provide mobile network data services. As a manpack, the radio provides a standard interface allowing a command and control application to access the Tactical Internet.
“This order is from a long-standing international customer that 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.
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.
