Thales and L3Harris battle for SINCGARS modernisation orders
Thales Defense and Security and L3Harris Technologies have been chosen by US Army Contracting Command to compete for each order under a $6.11 billion contract to modernise Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) radios in line with cryptographic modernisation requirements from the National Security Agency.
There were no other bidders in the process, the DoD disclosed on 25 March.
