Exelis has won two subcontracts totaling $617 million to help General Dynamics U.K. support the U.K. Ministry of Defence.
The contracts call for tactical communications modernization and logistics, supply and support for existing tactical radios.
Under the first subcontract, Exelis will provide post-engineering design services for VHF and UHF radios manufactured by Exelis for the U.K. Bowman team, the company said. The second subcontract calls for logistics, supply and support of current tactical radios fielded as part of the Bowman program, including replacements and repairs.
Exelis has been part of the Bowman program for over ten years.
