The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Airborne, Maritime and Fixed (AMF) program passed its recent Defense Acquisition Board (DAB). See an article here. This means it can move on to the next phase of the process, most likely System Development and Demonstration. JTRS is a new programmable radio for all of the services. The Army is managing the system that will go in vehicles and be carried by troops. AMF is for aircraft, ships and fixed ground stations. Boeing is the prime contractor, and will most likely be awarded the contract for this next phase, System Design and Development.

Updated 3/29/08 – Clarified that no contract has been awarded yet.
