Communication Equipment to Be Supplied For WIN-T Network

Lockheed Martin Information Systems And Global Services
: 03 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Lockheed Martin is supplying General Dynamics with tactical communication equipment for combat vehicles in use in the battlefield
Brigade combat teams manoeuvring across wide geographic areas will soon be linked with commanders and the Global Information Grid through an on-the-move broadband networking capability. As part of the WIN-T Increment 2 network, General Dynamics awarded Lockheed Martin a contract to provide communications hardware and equipment for the transmission subsystem. The transmission subsystem provides the foundation for the network's dynamic capability to transfer data over a highly dispersed, non-contiguous area. This contract award is valued at $71 million; this is the first part of a multiple year contract expected to be approximately $400 million in total value.

WIN-T will provide the high-capacity network backbone that will link soldiers across the battlefield. The next iteration of WIN-T, Increment 2, will equip tactical commanders' vehicles with on-the-move broadband communications, enabling them to see and command the battlefield wherever the mission demands.

'We are one step closer to helping soldiers stay connected to the systems they need while moving on the battlefield,' said Jim Quinn, Vice President with Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense. 'The equipment being produced will help provide a clear operational picture for theatre combatant commanders by keeping mobile forces connected, communicating and synchronized.'

Under this contract, Lockheed Martin's team will produce tactical communications equipment that will be incorporated into a variety of combat vehicle platforms. Equipment produced will include Transmission Subsystem radios, modems, antennas and mast systems. The team will also contribute in the development and delivery of training courses to signal operators as WIN-T Increment 2 is fielded.

Lockheed Martin is teamed with General Dynamics (Prime), BAE Systems, Harris Corporation, and L-3 Communications on the WIN-T program.
