SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Navy has ordered an
additional 53 General Dynamics-built AN/USC-61(C) four-channel Digital Modular
Radios (DMR) for use aboard new Navy ships, submarines and inshore sites. In
addition to the new radios, existing DMR hardware will be modified to
accommodate networking waveforms owned by the government. This order
exercises an option on a contract awarded to General Dynamics in 2010. The
option has a total potential value of $35 million.

"Serving the fleet since 1998, DMR radios continue to be extremely
cost-effective. With these hardware modifications the DMR will provide even
greater cost savings as it becomes interoperable with the U.S. Department of
Defense's next-generation radios," said Chris Marzilli, president of General
Dynamics C4 Systems.

General Dynamics has delivered more than 500 DMR radios to the Navy. The radio
is capable of simultaneous, secure short-range and global communications on
any of its four channels. The radio is interoperable with a wide variety of
legacy military radios and was the first software defined radio certified by
the National Security Agency to protect information classified at the Top
Secret level and below.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command for the Department of the Navy
Research, Development and Acquisition is the contracting authority.
