Power solutions and communications systems manufacturer Ultralife has secured a contract for the delivery of new adaptors and amplifiers to support the US Army’s Leader Radio programme.

Under the deal, the company will supply its vehicle amplifier-adaptors (VAA) and mounted very-high frequency (VHF) amplifiers to developer and manufacturer Thales Defense & Security.

Ultralife president and chief executive officer Michael D Popielec said: “Leveraging the fielding and operational success of our radio-specific VAA product line, this latest award demonstrates the effectiveness of our ongoing new product development strategy of designing and building technically advanced, integrated communication systems devices in collaboration with our strategic partners.

“The company’s radio-specific VAA platform provides soldiers with an increased range of digital voice and data communications, as well as operational flexibility.”

“We look forward to participating in this multi-year programme and continuing to add other new products and building blocks to our proven platforms for soldier modernisation.”

In September, Thales received the ten-year indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for the US Army’s Leader Radio programme.

The US Army Leader Radio helps support the service’s network modernisation strategy and network cross-functional team experimentation efforts.

Thales’ two-channel AN/PRC-148C system, integrated with the TrellisWare TSM waveform, will enable troops to carry one radio instead of the two separate units they currently use for voice and data communication.
