General Dynamics‘ C4 systems business unit has won a $40 million contract modification to port a digital waveform into the U.S. Navy‘s suite of digital modular radios.

The unit has provided the AN/USC-61(C) radios to the Navy since 1998 for maritime and shore-based communications in the high, very high and ultra high frequency bands for line-of-sight and satellite communications, General Dynamics said Tuesday.

According to the company, the Mobile User Objective System waveform is intended to connect the four-channel modular radios to the MUOS satellite communications network for voice and data connectivity in remote locations.

Chris Marzilli, president of the C4 systems unit, said the Navy has more than 500 digital modular radios in its communications fleet.

The company is building four MUOS ground sites and has also integrated the waveform into the AN/PRC-155 Manpack radio.
