Lockhead Martin & Sanmina-SCI in agreement

Lockheed Martin and Sanmina-SCI have signed a teaming agreement to compete for the U.S. Army program to upgrade thousands of existing tanks, trucks and tactical wheeled vehicles with a next-generation digital intercommunications system.
Lockheed Martin Systems Integration in Owego, NY, will be prime contractor and systems integrator with principal subcontractor Sanmina-SCI’s Defense and Aerospace Systems Division, Huntsville, AL. Together, the two companies will offer an enhanced tactical vehicle version of Sanmina-SCI’s proven TOCNET intercommunication system for the Army’s Vehicular Intercommunication System – Extended (VIS-X) competition.

Winner of the $3.5 billion VIS-X contract will integrate and support intercom systems in 54,000 vehicles worldwide, among them Abrams tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, up-armored HMMWVs and Army-operated commercial trucks. The VIS-X solution will provide vehicle crews with improvements in speech intelligibility and hearing protection, and will enable true on-the-move, command-and-control, over-the-horizon data and voice communications.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
