General Dynamics received $219 Million production order to build additional Warfighter Information Network –Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 systems from the U.S. Army.
The $219 million order includes the production of more than 300 vehicle-based network communication nodes along with related equipment and materials. WIN-T Increment 2 is the Army's communications backbone providing secure, on-the-move communications, mission command and situational awareness for commanders and their soldiers. The order allows the Army to continue fielding WIN-T Increment 2 to Army units currently scheduled to receive the system.
"WIN-T Increment 2 puts the power of the Soldier's Network into soldiers hands down to the company level, which is vitally important as the Army evolves into a more expeditionary force," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.
WIN-T Increment 2 is integrated into Mine-resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP), High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) and Stryker vehicles. To date, four division headquarters and 12 brigade combat teams have WIN-T Increment 2. The system successfully served Army units supporting the Security Force Assistance Brigades in Afghanistan by replacing the fixed communications infrastructure that was dismantled when the U.S. military closed its operating bases.
