Cobham and its U.S. partner Northrop Grumman were awarded a contract to provide vehicle intercom systems for the U.S. Army. This ten year contract could be worth over $10 billion if all options are exercised. The English company will provide its newer Vis-X system for use in a variety of armored and other vehicles. The two companies are already providing an earlier version of the system under a previous contract.

Over the last ten years the U.S. military has relied on European companies to provide all types of material. These companies often either have formed partnerships with major American contractors or invested in mergers and acquisitions of companies originally former there. This has allowed them to work within the constructs of U.S. technology transfer laws and provide the necessary competition required by U.S. contract requirements.
