Rockwell Collins has been selected to provide Extended Data Rate (XDR) International Partners Variant (IPV) Single Channel Anti-jam Manportable (SCAMP) terminals to the Canadian Department of National Defense (DND) for use with the U.S. Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellites. The five-year contract is valued at $52.3 million. The Foreign Military Sale contract will be executed through the U.S. Army's Communications-Electronics Command Group (CECOM). "Our SCAMP terminals will provide the Canadian DND with a protected satellite communications system that is survivable, yet flexible enough to meet their demanding requirements," said Alan Caslavka, vice president and general manager of Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "The SCAMP terminals will enable the DND to take advantage of the expanded communications availability made possible by the launching of the new military AEHF satellites."
