Viasat Receives $99M Navy Order for Tactical Radio Systems

Viasat (Nasdaq: VSAT) booked a $99 million order during the second quarter of its 2023 fiscal year to supply Joint Tactical Radio System terminals to the U.S. Navy.

The order from Naval Information Warfare Systems Command is part of a potential $998 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract awarded in May 2020, the company said Monday.

Viasat’s software-defined radio offering for the Multifunctional Information Distribution System JTRS program is designed to support Link 16 military communications and transmit data across ground, maritime and aerial platforms.

“MIDS JTRS radios are a critically important tool that enables warfighters to maintain communications superiority and secure data transport on the battlefield, as well as securely communicate with allied forces,” said Craig Miller, president of Viasat’s government systems division.

NAVWAR selected Viasat and Data Link Solutions — a joint venture between BAE Systems and Raytheon Technologies’ (NYSE: RTX) Collins Aerospace subsidiary – to manufacture the terminals for U.S. military and allied forces under the potential IDIQ contract vehicle.
