WIN-T winners named
The Army picked Lockheed Martin Corp. and General Dynamics Corp. for the initial phases of its multibillion-dollar Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program.
The Lockheed Martin award is worth $74.8 million, while General Dynamics' award is worth $72.3 million. The two companies estimate the entire program will be worth between $6 billion and $7 billion.
Over the next 12 months, Lockheed Martin, Bethesda, Md., and General Dynamics, Falls Church, Va., will define and document the architecture for WIN-T, with a focus on risk management, technology readiness and coordination with other Army transformation programs.
For phase two, which will last for 23 months, the teams will develop and deliver prototype hardware and software systems for testing by Army users. After phase two, the Army likely will select one of the two companies to begin initial, low-rate production.
