The Army has awarded DRS Technologies Inc. of Parsippany, N.J., a $31 million contract to provide joint tactical terminals under its Joint Tactical Terminal-Integrated Broadcast Service program.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, awarded by the Army's Communications and Electronics Command in Fort Monmouth, N.J., potentially could be worth $194 million over the next five years if all options are exercised.
The terminals are expected to give warfighters real-time tactical intelligence and targeting information.
The joint tactical terminals will support a global network that supplies critical data to battlefield, air and maritime operations, command centers and other support networks, according to DRS.
The terminals will be components of the Distributed Common Ground System, which integrates more than two dozen systems for capturing and reviewing intelligence data.
