Thales to Support Marines

Thales Communications, Inc., has been awarded two contracts by the Joint Program Executive Office Joint Tactical Radio System (JPEO JTRS) to provide Cradle Vehicle Adapters (CVAs) for the U.S. Marine Corps.

Under these deals, Thales will deliver 11, 000 50-Watt CVAs to the Marine Corps for use with previously-purchased Thales AN/PRC-148 JTRS-approved radios.

The contracts were awarded under the Consolidated, Interim, Single-Channel Handheld Radio (CISCHR) contract.

“The CVA, developed specifically for space-constrained installations, offers an alternative to legacy vehicular installations with the benefits of the multiband, multi-mode capability and a future growth path of the AN/PRC-148 JEM, ” said Andrew Bostock, director of Tactical Ground Communications Programs at Thales.
