Rockwell Collins Gets Military Contract for Transmitter

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- Cedar Rapids-based military contractor Rockwell Collins has been awarded a three-year government contract to develop a smaller, lighter, lower cost radio transmitter for military use.
   The contract, valued at up to $3.1 million, is authorized by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
   Current radios filter out unwanted radio signals but they are larger, more expensive and use more power. The new transmitter under development by Rockwell Collins prevents unwanted signals from interfering in the first place. The company says it has the technology to build a circuit that is very small, yet still provides high power and broadband operation.
   Rockwell Collins specializes in communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications.
   The company employs 19,000 workers in 27 countries.
