ITT’s DTCS-RO tactical radio ITT Corp.’s NexGen Communications in Dulles, VA received a $9.7 million firm-fixed-price contract to supply 1,450 distributed tactical communication systems-radio only (DTCS-RO) communication devices to the US Navy. The DTCS-RO communication devices are hand-held, beyond line-of-sight, push-to-talk tactical radios that use the Iridium satellite system. The device provides voice communications and Blue Force tracking, which provides US soldiers on the move, near real-time, situational awareness by showing where friendly and enemy units are located. ITT acquired NexGen Communications when it bought EDO Corp. in 2007 for $1.7 billion. EDO had acquired NexGen Communications, a privately-held company specializing in the design and production of communications systems for the US government, in 2005. After completing the EDO acquisition, ITT added NexGen to its Intelligence and Information Warfare (IIW) division. NexGen will perform the work in Dulles, VA and expects to complete it by March 2010. This contract was not competitively procured by the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Dahlgren Division in Dahlgren, VA (N00178-10-C-3056).
