Communications equipment maker Alcatel (Quote, Company Info) has won a multi-million-dollar subcontract to build a digital radio satellite broadcasting system.

The project flows through aerospace giant Boeing (Quote, Company Info) on behalf of XM Satellite Radio, a digital radio broadcaster.

Using two satellites and a network of ground relays, XM offers 100 music and talk channels to subscribers throughout the continental United States.

To get its service to consumers, Washington, D.C.-based XM has partnered with auto makers, audio systems manufacturers, and retailers, including GM, Pioneer, and Best Buy.

"This contract consolidates Alcatel Space' leadership in the digital radio broadcast market," said Pascale Sourisse, Chairman and CEO of Alcatel's satellite unit.
