Ultra TCS awarded IDIQ contract for battlespace IT systems for US DoD

4th August 2010 - 15:04 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ultra TCS, the premier global supplier of High Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radio communication systems, today announced that it has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract over seven years.

The awards have been made by the Canadian Commercial Corporation acting on behalf of the US Department of Defense for the AN/GRC-245A HCLOS radio communication system, a key element of the US Army's WIN-T Program. The initial contract authorization under the IDIQ contract is valued at about $31M (US) for the purchase of HCLOS radios, spares, and support to be delivered in the first half of 2011.

This seven years engagement validates the performance of Ultra TCS' HCLOS radio used in the US Army's WIN-T program. These radios will be used to support continued fieldings to US Army units. Ultra TCS has delivered thousands of HCLOS radios to the US Army, US Marine Corps and FMS Programs to support combat operations in theaters around the world.

The AN/GRC-245 HCLOS radio communication system is a state-of-the-art Software Defined Radio (SDR) and is using the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) open framework.

"We are pleased that our HCLOS radio continues to satisfy the US Army's demanding performance requirements and that we are able to continue our long relationship as a valuable supplier of communication systems with the US Army," states Iwan Jemczyk, president of Ultra TCS. "Many US military units currently deployed in combat zones around the world rely on our HCLOS communications systems to provide the backbone communications between command posts. This award acknowledges the years of dedication of Ultra TCS towards innovation and the ongoing commitment of our people to support the US Army in providing to its soldiers the tactical radio communications systems they require, today and in the future, to safely complete their missions."
