ITT Corp. will provide radio communications software for the Navy under a two-year contract with a potential estimated value of $117 million.
The work is part of a modification to an existing contract held by ITT's Aerospace Communications Division in Fort Wayne, Ind. The company will install Soldier Radio Waveform software for joint tactical radios. The installation will provide voice, data and video tactical communications services that support network-centric operations.
About 90 percent of the contract work will be performed in Clifton, N.J., and the rest in Fort Wayne.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C., is managing the contract work.
ITT, of White Plains, N.Y., ranks No. 14
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
