Agilent Technologies Awarded $94 Million Contract by U.S. Army for Radio Test Sets
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced today that it has been awarded a $94 million contract by the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command Redstone Arsenal. Under the contract, Agilent will deliver its AN/PRM-35 Radio Test Set (RTS) over six years, beginning in 2008, to the U.S. Army Product Manager Test, Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment organization.
Uninterrupted communications is critical to protection and management of deployed personnel. The RTS is designed to test field radios in the harshest of environments. It is part of the U.S. Army’s Test Equipment Modernization (TEMOD) mission to improve the readiness and reduce operating and support costs of the Army’s current and future systems. Totaling up to 12,000 radio test sets and related services, the contract represents the single largest ever awarded in its category.
“This is a significant achievement for Agilent,” said Tom Burrell, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Signal Network Division. “It represents an enormous win in one of our key growth initiatives. We are continuing to invest in delivering superior and advanced test technology to the U.S. Department of Defense and its prime contractors.”
