SAN DIEGO (Nov. 19, 2013) – Rockwell Collins and CACI have been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army to provide satellite communications, radio frequency service and support for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program. The $125 million contract includes options for two additional years.
“Our proven ability to perform in this segment, along with our recognition of the Department of Defense’s cost containment goals, were keys to winning this contract,” said Thierry Tosi, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “Rockwell Collins and CACI were able to support the customer’s desire to reduce costs while maintaining outstanding service performance to support the warfighter."
WIN-T is a U.S. Army program that provides the communications network (satellite and terrestrial) and services that allow the soldier to send and receive information in order to execute the mission.
