Cobham Defense Communications has received $26 million in contracts from Northrop Grumman Corp. to provide digital vehicular intercom systems that will be used on wheeled and tracked Army vehicles.
The ROVIS (AN/VIC-3) intercom systems will be used to meet requirements established by the Army Program Office for Enterprise Information Systems, Cobham said July 20. The intercom offers enhanced communications and situational awareness to users of Army combat vehicles. The deliveries will be completed by the end of 2010.
Among the vehicles that will receive the intercom systems are the recently fielded Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicle, the company said.
Cobham intercom modules are used by 22 armies and can be tailored to light, medium, heavy and marine platforms.
