The US Navy has awarded a $82.6 million worth contract to Rockwell Collins to manufacture and deliver the AN/ARC-210 family of radio equipment, the Department of defense announced Thursday.
The awarded $82,621,600 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a base requirement “for a maximum of 550 GEN 6 (RT-2036(C)) radios and a maximum of 1,150 units of associated ancillary equipment in support of the Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, other government agencies and foreign military sales customers”, the statement says.
Work will be performed in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and is expected to be completed in September 2020. No funds will be obligated at time of award. Funds will be obligated on individual orders as they are issued.
The ARC-210 aircraft radio provides VHF close air support radio communications on 30-88 MHz frequencies; navigation on 108-118 MHz; air traffic control on 118-137 MHz; land mobile communications on 137-156 MHz; and maritime communications on 156-174 MHz. The radios also provide aircraft with UHF military and homeland defense communications on 225-512 MHz frequencies; and public-safety communications on 806-824, 851-869, 869-902, and 935-941 frequencies.
The ARC-210 radio also includes embedded anti-jam waveforms, including Have Quick and SINCGARS, and other data link and secure communications features for battlefield interoperability and transfer of data, voice, and imagery. The radios communicate with other avionics over a MIL-STD-1553 data bus.
