ITT Winding Down SINCGARS Production

For the last thirty years the standard radio for the U.S. armed forces and many of its allies has been based around the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) VHF system. This radio began production in the Eighties and while multiple companies have made it the original developer and company that has made thousands of them is ITT Corporation (ITT).

As with all defense contracts at some point the military has bought all that they need or want. New systems get developed that will replace them when they enter service so ultimately production will complete and the defense contractor will lose a product line. That is what is happening now with the SINGCARS.

Unfortunately for the workforce ITT does not have a similar product to replace the radio and there are now going to be layoffs at their plant in Fort Wayne, IN where the radios are assembled. The last contract was for 58,000 systems and was awarded in 2009. The plant overall has assembled over 500,000 of the radios.

The U.S. has been working on a new comprehensive radio suite called Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) now for almost fifteen years and parts of that program are now starting to go into production. ITT will certainly have the ability to bid for work on that program.
