General Dynamics C4 Systems has won an estimated $111 million delivery order for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 2 communications system the U.S. Army intends to use for remote operations in Afghanistan.
The WIN-T Inc 2 network nodes work to facilitate video and voice data exchanges between defense forces for enhanced situational awareness and command and control, General Dynamics said Wednesday.
Work to manufacture the apparatuses will be performed mainly at the company’s plant in Taunton, MA.
“WIN-T Inc 2 is the backbone of the soldier’s network and this order ensures we continue the work of fielding this unprecedented system to soldiers throughout the Army, Reserves and National Guard,” said Chris Marzilli, General Dynamics C4 Systems president.
“We look forward to working with the Army to complete the production of its on-the-move network,” Marzilli added.
Nearly 210 military and National Guard units currently use the WIN-T Inc 2 and the Army began to utilize the network system in Afghanistan earlier this year.
