Rockwell Collins has received a potential five-year, $82.6M contract to deliver its sixth-generation Mobile User Objective System-enabled airborne radios and ancillaries to warfighters.

The company said Thursday it will install the ARC-210 RT-2036(C) radios on defense platforms such as fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, ships and ground platforms to provide military forces with voice, video and mission data over an internet protocol-based system.

The communication system is designed to transmit multiple legacy and advanced waveforms, mobile ad hoc networking and beyond-line-of-sight connectivity through a software-defined radio structure.

Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of communication, navigation and electronic warfare solutions at Rockwell Collins, said the contract will help equip warfighters with modern communication capabilities such as those enabled by MUOS.

The U.S. Navy certified the ARC-210 RT-2036(C) radio for use with the MUOS network in February.

Rockwell Collins’ contract – which is the company’s first long-term one with the DoD to provide MUOS-capable transceivers – also covers the delivery of fifth-generation ARC-210 radios, ancillaries, and supporting data and services.
