Australia installs SINCGARS radios in tanks

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., 13 Dec. 2005. ITT Industries, Inc. has received a $4.6 million order for several hundred of its newest SINCGARS systems from the Australian Ministry of Defense.

ITT developed SINCGARS with the U.S. Army, and has produced five generations of the combat net radios with a quarter-million in operation around the world. The newest generation SINCGARS combines data, voice and geo-location information into a 7.5-pound package that can be placed in a rucksack or mounted in vehicles like tanks and personnel carriers.

Australian SINCGARS will be used in Abrams tanks and configured for long-range operations. SINCGARS technology was purchased as part of on-going modernization and interoperability plans for the Australian armed forces.

Among the various SINCGARS features are the ESIP waveform that improves voice and data retransmission as well as digital signal processing of software upgrades for enhanced features and performance.

Work will be performed by ITT's Aerospace/Communications division, headquartered in Fort Wayne, Ind.

ITT Industries, Inc. supplies advanced technology products and services in key markets including: fluid and water management including water treatment; defense communication, opto-electronics, information technology and services; electronic interconnects and switches; and other specialty products. Headquartered in White Plains, N.Y., the company generated $6.8 billion in 2004 sales. For more information, see www.itt.com.
