Ultra Electronics - VUltra ATS awarded 5-year IDIQ contract - 31/7/2019.

Ultra Electronics Advanced Tactical Systems announces today that it has been awarded a $39.92 Million, five-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the Program Executive Office, Land Systems (PEO LS), United States Marine Corps.

This contract will provide software sustainment and upgrade of the Virtual Air Defense Systems Integrator (vADSI) used in the Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S). The initial delivery order for 2019 will be $2.18 million.

CAC2S provides Marine Corps Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs) and Marine Air-Ground Task Forces (MAGTFs) the ability to process and display mission critical data while automatically correlating air and ground targets allowing battlefield commanders the tactical advantage through enhanced decisionmaking.

vADSI and CAC2S provides primary tactical and mission functionality that is interoperable in a Joint tactical data link environment, and meets US, UK and NATO combat mission requirements. Over the course of CAC2S development, the vADSI has been enhanced to integrate and interface with multiple tactical information systems and networks to enable CAC2S to fully support the future combat requirements of the Marine Corps. Tim Stanley, President of ATS, commented: "ATS continues to lead the data link market with the first joint certified virtual machine family of tactical data link gateways. Our team is excited about supporting Marines onshore, on afloat Amphibious ships, as well as connecting data and voice to their latest generation F-35s, and we look forward to enhancing the United States Marine Corps' digital interoperability initiatives throughout the lifecycle of CAC2S."
