Big players chase DOD radio design

Competition is heating up for the next phase of the Defense Department's Joint Tactical Radio System: Teams led by Lockheed Martin Corp. and Boeing Co. have submitted proposals to design JTRS Air Force and Navy radios.

DOD is expected to choose two companies in June to begin design of the radios.

The 15-month Airborne and Maritime Fixed Station Joint Tactical Radio System development contract will be worth about $54 million. Building and delivering radios based on the approved concepts will up the contract's worth to as much as $1 billion, according to Lockheed Martin.
