Wayne, New Jersey - BAE Systems has been awarded a $9.4 million contract for Link-16 Software In-Service Support (SwISS) for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS). The work will include technical support, enhancements, maintenance and upgrades to the JTRS Link-16 waveform software. The total program value could reach $24.3 million if all options are exercised. "As the original developer of the Link-16 JTRS Waveform Software and supplier of JTRS products, BAE Systems is uniquely positioned to effectively maintain and enhance the JTRS Link-16 Software through the SwISS program," said Michael Beltrani, Link-16 Systems Program Director.
