The US Army has awarded a $3m order to General Dynamics to integrate the Prophet Enhanced tactical signals intelligence system into its military vehicles.

The upgraded intelligence system, when integrated with the medium mine-protected vehicles (MMPV), enables soldiers to see, hear and respond better to intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR) information on the battlefield.

It also helps tactical commanders securely and accurately detect, identify, locate and deter a wide range of signal emissions in the war zone.

The Prophet Enhanced design incorporates pre-planned upgrades and technology insertions to make it economically viable.

The US Army awarded the six-year, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to the General Dynamics-led team in February 2009.

The contract is valued at an estimated $866m. In addition to the $3m order, an initial delivery order worth $71m was awarded in February.
