Boeing has been awarded $87 million contract for the combat survivor evader locator (CSEL) contractor logistics support.

Work is expected to be complete by Dec. 31, 2022, the US department of defense said in a statement Friday.

CSEL is the Department of Defense's program of record for combat search and rescue communications. CSEL allows rescue teams to locate isolated personnel using multi-satellite, over-the-horizon communications and GPS.

The multifunction CSEL radio gives combat forces a tactical advantage with its communication and message encryption techniques. With CSEL, rescue teams can locate isolated personnel quickly after receiving a call for help.
