In last week’s Update No 40 we said that:

10 Oct 07. Thales communications told the Editor that the company has won a $128,778,475 sole-source contract for MBITR single channel handheld radios under the previously notified CISCHR multiple award ID/IQ contract which included Harris and Thales. The Order is for 390,000 radios headsets and batteries.

We apologise to Thales that some of the details were incorrect:

1. It wasn’t sole source. It was competitive. Thales Inc. received 100% of the award.
2. It wasn’t for the MBITR. It was for the AN/PRC-148 JTRS Enhanced MBITR (JEM).
3. It wasn’t for 390,000 radios headsets and batteries. It was for more than 39,000 radios and also includes accessories like headsets and batteries.
