Harris Corp. of Melbourne, Fla., won a contract from the
Army's Communications-Electronics Command to provide command, control, communications and computer systems support for Joint Task Force-Bravo at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras.
The one-year contract is worth $6.1 million. If all four option years are exercised, the contract could be worth more than $25 million, according to Harris officials.
Harris Technical Services Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Harris Corp., will perform the work. The new contract extends the work Harris Technical Services has done on the program for the past 15 years, said Larry Whitfield, president of that division.
HTSC offers operation, maintenance, engineering and technical support to the U.S. government, prime contractors and other Harris divisions. Under the new contract, HTSC will provide operations and maintenance support for the JTF-Bravo command, control, communications and computer systems equipment, local area networks, radios, telephones, and satellite terminals and equipment.
Soto Cano Air Base is responsible for the support of all U.S. military operations in Central America.
Harris team members include Sytex Inc. of Doylestown, Pa., and Charter Trading Corp. of Houston.
Harris Corp. provides communications products, systems and services to government and commercial customers. The company has more than 10,000 employees providing services in more than 150 countries. Harris had $2.1 billion in fiscal 2003 revenue. It ranks No. 16 on Washington Technology's 2004 list of Top 100 IT prime contractors to the federal government.
