Exelis has been awarded a $115 million Foreign Military Sales contract for communications equipment, spare parts and operator training.
The equipment will be delivered to what Exelis would only identify as an “existing international customer.” The contract includes several communications systems, including SpearNet handheld radios, the RT-1702 SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System) in the VRC-90 System, the VRC-92 Dual Long Range Radio System and PRC-119 Manpack Radio Systems with GPS.
Also included are spare parts for all radios as well as SpearNet training for both the vehicular and soldier radio systems.
“This is a key award for Exelis from an existing international customer,” said Nick Bobay, the president and general manager of Exelis Night Vision and Tactical Communications Systems. “Our widely fielded and combat-proven SINCGARS continues to be the communications backbone for this force, and they are now integrating our SpearNet into their network as well.”
