General Dynamics Announces $346M Army WIN-T Increment Order; Michael Rayfield Comments

On the heels of the Army announcing a limited deployment of a General Dynamics-made (NYSE: GD) tactical communications network, the company’s C4 systems unit announced Thursday it received a $346 million delivery order to implement the network.

The company will help the Army field the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 2 as part of the branch’s Capability Set 13 initiative to upgrade its communications infrastructure.

The Army conducted an initial test of the increment during a network integration evaluation in the summer summer, involving more than 4, 000 soldiers over a 2, 000-square-mile area.

“After seeing this technology in action, I couldn’t imagine going back to the way we were fighting the battle before, ” said Army 1st Sgt. Michael Rayfield, brigade signal operations sergeant of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division.

Initial fielding of the WIN-T Increment 2 started Monday at Ft. Drum, N.Y. and Ft. Polk, La., with the training of two brigades of the 10th Mountain Division using previously procured equipment.
