Tadiran, Israel Electronic Industry, was awarded a $39 million contract by the U.S. Army to build radios for the M-l Battle Tank and other military vehicles, it was announced here by the Pentagon. Tadiran, which is 44 percent owned by GTE International, said it plans to build the radios in Holon. The decision to award Tadiran the contract followed a decision by E-Systems of Dallas, Texas, to withdraw its court challenge to stop the award on grounds that Tadiran had been given preferential treatment by the Pentagon. The Dallas firm had asked for a temporary injunction against the award, contending the Tadiran did not comply with Pentagon labor, environmental and non-discriminatory regulations governing contracts. The Israeli firm said such U.S. regulations were not applicable to its bid.
