1 min read

ArmyChopperThe Defense Department has given the U.S. Army approval to continue a communication modernization program despite the government shutdown and budget cuts, FedScoop reported Monday.

Dan Verton writes the Pentagon awarded a a $111 million contract to General Dynamics C4 Systems for the Army’s $6 billion Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program.

This follow-on order to General Dynamics C4 Systems covers additional network nodes for WIN-T Increment 2, which was deployed in Afghanistan earlier in July.

Nearly 500 supplier companies and thousands of contractor employees perform work to support development of WIN-T, Verton reports.

WIN-T works to connect a brigade combat team with initial on-the-move broadband networks via satellite and radio links, according to the report.
