Cobham and Northrop Grumman have won a $2.4 Billion contract to supply battlefield communication software to the U.S. Army.
Under the contract, Cobham and Northrop Grumman will supply the -X Vehicular Intercommunication System Expanded. Initially, the companies will be expected to deliver up to 500 VIS-X systems monthly but will have to provide up to 2, 000 systems after the first year. The program will be installed in the Humvee, Abrams, and Bradley tanks.
“VIS-X will allow soldiers and other vehicle mounted troops to communicate faster, safer and more securely with greater understanding of the operational situation during the most demanding missions, ” said Allan Cook, Chief Executive of Cobham.
