Denver International Airport (DEN), CO, and Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL), MO, airports will use the ITT Exelis vehicle movement area transmitter (VMAT) solution to enhance airport surface safety and efficiency.
ITT Exelis has received a $3.2 million contract from Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. to design an advanced receiver chain for the U.S. Air Force Weather Satellite Follow-on (WSF) program. The new design will improve measurements of ocean surface winds used for severe weather forecasting.
ITT Exelis received National Security Agency (NSA) certifications for its SideHat and the Soldier Radio-Rifleman (SR-R) radios. Certification allows the radios to operate up to the "SECRET" level and be fully integrated into the U.S. Army's tactical communications network.
ITT Exelis successfully completed the 33-month technology maturation phase of the U.S. Navy's Next Generation Jammer program. Installed on the U.S. Navy's EA-18G electronic attack aircraft, the Next Generation Jammer will allow U.S. forces to defeat integrated air defense systems.
ITT Exelis has been awarded a contract by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, CA, to provide specialized antennas for the Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere & Climate-2 (COSMIC-2) program.
