AÂ CubicÂ (NYSE: CUB) subsidiary has won a potential 10-year, $325M contract to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with communications systems designed to process beyond-line of-sight microwave signals.
GATR TechnologiesÂ will manufacture 172 troposcatter systems and support testing, fielding and sustainment activities as part of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
The IDIQ includes the delivery of technical, logistics and training data to support GATR antennas.
Marine Corps Systems Command received two offers for the contract through a solicitation onÂ FedBizOpps and will obligate $28.8M on the initial delivery order.
Contract work is slated to take place in Hunstville, Ala., through October 2029.
According to Cubic, its GATRÂ Tropo antenna is designed toÂ send and receive signalsÂ up to 200 miles through the Earthâs troposphereÂ without relying on satcom technology.
