US Army to receive more soldier-borne video terminals
Sole bidder Textron has received a $92.53 million contract to provide more One System Remote Video Terminal (OSRVT) and Soldier Portable OSRVT (SPOT) units for the US Army.
It will also provide contractor logistics support and complete work by 7 February 2024, the DoD noted in a 3 June announcement.
Textron has delivered the OSRVT since 2011 under a programme of record. Users include the US Army, USMC and SOF.
OSRVT delivers full-motion video, images and critical geospatial data from various sources ‘directly to the warfighter’s fingertips’, the company claims.
The original OSRVT has been upgraded with a bidirectional capability, upgraded software architecture and user-friendlier interface.
SPOT includes portable antennas, a multi-band transceiver and a ruggedised computer.

Enhancing electronic support to achieve spectrum dominance within multi-domain operations (sponsored)
Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
