Army data communications deal goes to Raytheon

The Army has chosen Raytheon Co. as the winner of a five-year, $48 million contract to standardize and integrate its communications systems.

Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., will furnish 15 Multiplexer Integration and Digital Communication Satellite Subsystem Automation Systems, known as MIDAS.

The systems offer more efficient and less expensive data communications switching and routing functions and give geographically dispersed users immediate and automated access to voice, video and data communications. They also maintain interoperability with the existing communications infrastructure.
