The U.S. Army Program Executive Office C3T has selected Rockwell Collins to produce 101 HMS (Handheld, Manpack and Small Form Factor) manpack radios and ancillaries beginning this month. The award is a follow-on to a contract awarded last spring to Rockwell Collins, which qualified the company to compete for the potential 10-year, USD12.7 billion HMS manpack radio program.

It comes after customer testing which included the production and testing of 50 AN/PRC-162 two-channel, software-defined military communication radios, based on the company’s TruNet networked communications solution family of products.

Next year, HMS manpack radios will undergo field-based risk reduction testing.
