Northrop Grumman-Cobham JV to Start Vehicular Comm System Production - top government contractors - best government contracting event

CellTowerA joint venture of Northrop Grumman and Cobham plc has received the first order for a vehicular communication system the team is building for the U.S. Army under a potential $2.4 billion contract awarded in 2009.

Northrop Grumman Cobham Intercoms LLC will begin the AN/VIC-5 program’s production and deployment phase and completed validation and verification testing earlier this year, the company said Tuesday.

The AN/VIC-5 is based on the AN/VIC-3, an intercom system that was used by more than 100,000 U.S. ground vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan.

AN/VIC-5 systems are built with control consoles, operator stations, cables and headsets.

NGCI designed the system to facilitate noise-free communications while inside and outside a combat vehicle for up to 58 dismounted users and 16 combat net radios at a time.
