The Pentagon has awarded a $288 million worth contract to Rockwell Collins to manufacture and deliver the AN/ARC-210 family of radio equipment in support of the US Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Foreign Military Sales customers. 

“Rockwell Collins Government Systems, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is awarded $288,537,270 for modification P00001 to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (N00421-18-D-0004) to exercise option year one for the manufacture and delivery of the AN/ARC-210 family of radio equipment in support of Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Foreign Military Sales customers,” the Department of defense announced Monday.

The ARC-210 radio package 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.

Work will be performed in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and is expected to be completed in September 2021, the release added.

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.
