U.S. Army Aviation Missile Command (AMCOM) awarded Symetrics Industries a contract, expected to exceed $50 million, to design the next generation of the Improved data modems (IDM-304B) for installation on multiple Army aircraft. The contract also allows the Army to order 1500 of these new modems over the next six to seven years. Symetrics Industries is expected to add engineering and program support staff as a result of the 304B program. In addition, the company will likely have to create additional workspace and is considering an expansion of its NASA Boulevard campus in Melbourne, FL.
