Datron adds services to current FMS contract
Datron World Communications has announced the addition of training, support and other critical services to its existing $495 million foreign military sales (FMS) IDIQ contract with the US Army Communications Electronics Command.
Under the revised contract, Datron will provide a total package approach to its FMS customers and end-users by offering tactical radio systems with the necessary services to effectively field, utilise and maintain the radio equipment.
Datron will offer a streamlined path to acquisitions for equipment training, field service representative support, and other requisite services needed to support and sustain the company’s tactical HF, VHF and multi-band communications products.
John Biljan, VP of sales and marketing, Datron, said: ‘The addition of services has been an important part of our strategy as we continue to promote a full complement of radio communications products and services that match the requirements of our FMS customers with their capabilities. The addition of services to Datron’s IDIQ will considerably reduce the acquisition timeline for training and other services needed to fully support our customers in the field.’
