ThalesRaytheonSystems was picked to demonstrate a prototype system for the Marine Corps’ Common Aviation Command and Control System.
The prototype agreement is valued at $5 million.
The firm will present its proposed CAC2S system later this year at Camp Pendleton, Calif.
“We are reaching across industry to offer the Marines a technically compliant, scalable, affordable, low-risk capability for its CAC2S program, ” Kim Kerry, CEO of ThalesRaytheonSystems’ U.S. Operations said. “With 45 years of experience in C2 systems around the world, including numerous mobile systems, we have innovative technologies that have been proved in operational systems. We can provide both ends of the spectrum – innovation and proven success.”
