The Army will determine performance location and funds with each individual task order and DoD expects contract work under the base period to finish by April 28, 2020.

Rifleman radios are intended to be rugged, lightweight and handheld for troops to transmit voice and data communications through the Soldier Radio Waveform application and the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical.
