The value of the contract is $10.9 million, but neither Exelis nor DLA provided details on the number of radios to be supplied nor their delivery schedule.
The ARC-201D, which provides voice and data communications with networking and anti-jamming capabilities, is the primary Army Aviation voice communications radio and the only qualified single channel, ground and airborne radio system capable of use on the UH-60M and CH-47 platforms.
"With nearly 600,000 SINCGARS [single channel ground and airborne radio system] delivered to the Army to date, the ARC-201D easily integrates into the Army's critical network on the battlefield providing proven, robust and secure communications for warfighters," said Nick Bobay, president of the Exelis Night Vision & Communications Solutions division.
Exelis said the radios will be produced by its facility in Fort Wayne, Ind.
