The U.S. Army will soon be using satellite and terrestrial communications capabilities delivered in part by Lockheed Martin to support battlefield operations around the globe.
Lockheed Martin was awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to supply communications and transmissions systems to the U.S. Army's Project Manager of Defense Communications and Army Transmissions Systems (PM DCATS). Under this contract with a ceiling of $4.1 billion, Lockheed Martin will compete for task orders to provide communications and transmission systems to meet the Army's challenge of affordably adapting to changing technology while significantly reducing energy usage. All task orders must be initiated within the contract's five-year period of performance.
