GDMS secures WIN-T Increment 2 order

25th June 2015 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) has been awarded the first full-rate production (FRP) order for the US Army's Warfighter Information Network–Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 system, it announced on 24 June.

The $219 million order will see GDMS produce more than 300 network communication nodes and related materials and equipment. WIN-T Increment 2 enables intelligence and information communication and sharing on patrol, providing connectivity similar to a stationary command post.

The FRP order will allow the army to continue fielding the system to units that are currently scheduled to receive WIN-T Increment 2. The system is integrated into Stryker, HMMWVs and MRAP vehicles.

Chris Marzilli, president, GDMS, said: 'WIN-T Increment 2 puts the power of the soldier's network into soldiers hands down to the company level, which is vitally important as the army evolves into a more expeditionary force.

'As full-rate production begins, our engineering teams will continue working closely with the army to upgrade technology and human-factors design, giving soldiers a decisive information advantage wherever they are called to serve.'
