Navy taps Harris for radio communications

Harris Corp. has won a $12 million contract from the Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command for shipboard, high-frequency radio communications systems, the company announced today. The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a ceiling of $41 million.

Harris' RF Communications Division will supply high-frequency, broadband communications systems for Navy warships, including San Antonio-class amphibious transport ships, Arleigh Burke-class guided missile cruisers, Nimitz-class aircraft carriers and Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruisers.

This is the third contract Harris has won to provide radio systems to the Navy as it updates high-frequency systems.

The high-frequency radio group system offers the Navy building blocks that can be configured to satisfy a variety of platforms. Harris has delivered such systems for nine different hull platforms.

Harris of Melbourne, Fla., has about 10,000 employees and annual sales of $2 billion. The company was ranked No. 25 on Washington Technology's 2003 Top 100 list.
