General Dynamics has received a two-year, $12.9 million contract modification to produce software-based radio systems for installation aboard U.S. Navy submarines and surface vessels.
The Defense Department said Thursday the company will continue to build AN/USC-61(C) digital modular radios and provide sparing components, supplies and support services to the military service.
The modification brings the total value of the contract awarded by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command to about $304.1 million.
AN/USC-61(C) DMRs are designed to operate across multiple waveforms and seek to help military users secure tactical voice and data communications.
General Dynamics’ mission systems unit will perform work at company facilities in Arizona, California and Pennsylvania through October 2018.
