NEWTON, N.C., June 8 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has modified a contract with General Dynamics to continue supporting the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program.

U.S. company General Dynamics says its Satellite Communications Technologies unit was awarded the Army WIN-T contract modification. Under the $119 million deal, General Dynamics will deliver 293 of its Satellite Transportable Terminals and six of its Unit Hub SATCOM Trucks to support the WIN-T program.
