Cubic (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 Technologies 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 on 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 GATR Tropo antenna is designed to send and receive signals up to 200 miles through the Earth’s troposphere without relying on satcom technology.
