U.S. Army and Marine Corps communications experts needed ground-mobile antennas for the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS). They found their solution from the ITT Corp. Electronic Systems segment in Clifton, N.J. ITT won a $69 million contract to provide SINCGARS ground mobile antennas.
The SINCGARS ground mobile antenna is for military applications and is mounted to a spring assembly that absorbs shock and vibration. The antenna is also available in a tripod version, which can be deployed on ground-mobile vehicles or fixed sites.
Annually, ITT produces more than 50,000 antennas, which are built by the ITT Antennas Products & Technologies business in Bohemia, N.Y. More than 530,000 SINCGARS radios have been delivered for more than 120 ground vehicles.
