Raytheon, EADS NA Win Order for Data and Voice Radios

ArmyLogisticsRaytheon (NYSE: RTN) and EADS North America have been awarded a $33.2 million contract to supply the U.S. Army with light utility helicopters and aviation radios, Avionics Intelligence reported Sunday.

John Keller writes the Redstone Arsenal, Ala.-based Army Contracting Command awarded the companies with the order to provide six UH-7 Lakota military helicopters and six AN/ARC-231 voice and data radios.

EADS’ American Eurocopter division develops the UH-72A, which is designed as twin-engine chopper with a single four-bladed main rotor and is meant as the military version of the EC145, the report said.

The Marlborough, Mass.-based integrated defense systems division of Raytheon manufactures the AN/ARC-231, which intended as a satellite communications terminal and line-of-sight very high frequency and ultra high frequency radio, Keller writes.
