ITT Exelis receives $25 million equipment order
ITT Exelis has received a USD 25 million order to provide communications equipment to an international customer.
This Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program contract was awarded by the U.S. Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. The award includes the delivery of Exelis International Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) VHF Base Stations and Vehicular Systems in single and dual radio configurations. It also includes Spearhead VHF Handheld Radios, unit and intermediate level spares, installation services and field service representative support. “This order builds on the customer’s substantial Exelis-installed radio product base in a very challenging security environment,” said Ken Harrison, vice president of the International Night Vision and Tactical Communications Systems business area. “We will continue to work hard to fulfill U.S. and allied communications requirements with our tactical radio products.” The FMS program is the government-to-government method for selling U.S. defense equipment, services and training to allied nations.
