Army to Release Radio Request

The Army is moving toward Full Rate Production (FRP) for both the Rifleman and Manpack Radios. The Army recently awarded contracts to two vendors for its Handheld, Manpack and Small Form Fit (HMS) Rifleman Radio and is soon preparing to release the final Request For Proposals (RFP) for the Manpack Radio. Fielding for the Rifleman Radio is scheduled to begin in Fiscal Year 2017 and in Fiscal Year 2018 for the Manpack Radios. A draft proposal for the Manpack Radio is available on the U.S. Army website — search for the word 'manpack'.
