LOS ANGELES, Calif. Silvus Technologies announced that Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is integrating Silvus systems into its solution for the U.S. Army National Guard (ARNG) Mission Equipment Package (MEP) program. Silvus will support SNC with its StreamCaster radios as part of the HAMMER MANET kit.

Under the MEP program, SNC will produce, support, and field intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems (ISR) systems, known as HAMMER MANET kits, as a subcontractor to Airbus Helicopters.
