Exelis has been awarded a direct commercial contract valued at $5.4 million to provide communications installation equipment to an international customer.

This sale includes SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Communications System) installation kits along with training services for the customer. As part of this contract Exelis will provide the hardware and training services to support the installation and integration of SINCGARS VHF radios across a broad range of customer vehicles to meet their operational needs.

Exelis has sold more than 600,000 SINCGARS radios along with supporting ancillary devices worldwide. This fifth generation SINCGARS capability is one half the size of the original radio, contains integrated capability improvements, and maintains a robust encryption protocol. The radio is designed to provide network data services in both mounted and dismounted configurations. In the mounted role the radio works with the Exelis internet controller to provide mobile ad hoc network data services. As a manpack, the radio provides a standard interface allowing a command and control application to access the Tactical Internet.

 "With this order, we will provide a key international customer the ability to leverage their installed base of SINCGARS radios, expand the robust and reliable network that SINCGARS provides on the modern battlefield, and enhance their operational mission capability," said Nick Bobay, president of the Exelis Night Vision and Tactical Communications Systems division.
