Data Link Solutions and ViaSat (Nasdaq: VSAT) have received contract modifications worth $123.4 million combined to continue to develop, produce and sustain Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio Systems terminals for the U.S. Navy.

The modifications to a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract increase the contract’s ceiling value from $478.6 million to $602 million, the Defense Department said Thursday.
