The U.S. Army is seeking contractors for a $988 million multiple award contract that will supply the branch with advanced vehicle radios for the next decade, reports NextGov.
According to the Bob Brewin article, the award calls for single-channel vehicle radios that run the government-owned joint tactical radio system soldier radio waveform used in handheld Rifleman Radios and manpack sets, and can be mounted in chassis that hold older single-channel ground and airborne radio system radios.
The Army expects to award the contracts next April. The first two delivery orders will support two brigades under the Army’s process for fielding integrated network systems to its tactical units.
The first delivery order will be for 238 radios that operate at the secret level, followed by a second delivery of 554 unclassified radios.
