WestWind will supply  Digital Backbone B-Kits for the Army's MRAP vehicles. Deliveries are expected throughout the first half of 2011.

WestWind Technologies Inc. has been awarded a multiyear contract valued at $376 million to supply Digital Backbone Kits to the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM) for the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program. TACOM is the acquisition and support center for all of the Army’s ground vehicles. WestWind will supply the Command, Control, Communications, and Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Digital Backbone B-Kits in production quantities and package them for integration onto the vehicles. This land vehicle program integrates additional capability to the vehicles, enables future growth, and improves operational capability for the crews. The company has already received the first $35 million order under the new contract and will begin performance immediately. Deliveries on the initial order are scheduled throughout the first half of 2011. WestWind will perform the contract work at its assembly and distribution facilities in Huntsville. DRS-TEM, also located in Huntsville, will produce the video data distribution system, which is a key component of the kits.
