Raytheon to supply radio systems to US special operations forces.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-17 April 2000-Raytheon to supply radio systems to US special operations forces (C)1994-2000 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Raytheon Co has won a four-year contract to provide multi-band multi-mission radio (MBMMR) systems to the US Special Operations Command.

The contract has an initial value of USD5.75m but if all options are fully exercised the contract's value could increase to USD179m.

Based on Raytheon's PSC-5D radio, MBMMR is an enhanced communication system designed for US Army, Navy and Air Force special operations forces. The system is designed to deliver all the communications capabilities a special operations soldier will need while significantly reducing the weight and volume of the equipment carried in the soldier's rucksack.

Under the initial agreement Raytheon will supply two vehicular and 227 manpack systems to the Special Operations Command.
