Harris to support Southern Command in Honduras

Five-year task order is worth $38 million to Melbourne, Fla., contractor

Harris Corp. will continue working with the Army to improve command security and operations in Central America under a five-year task order worth $38 million.

The Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services (ITES-2S) award calls for Harris to assist the U.S. Southern Command’s Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems (C4S) operations and maintenance program for Joint Task Force-Bravo at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras.

JTF-Bravo is the commander of all U.S. military operations in Central America.

Under the contract, Harris and its team will continue to service JTF-Bravo’s C4 systems and networks, including supporting network and telecommunications help desk customer services, a Nov. 17 company announcement said.

The contracting team also will provide C4S installation and upgrade services, information assurance and computer network defense, telecommunications and circuit management, as well as manage microwave communications systems, including power production at remote microwave sites.

This critical infrastructure program supports the commander of JTF-Bravo in the execution of USSOUTHCOM’s strategy to build partner-nation capacity. It is intended to bolster security, stability and prosperity in the Americas, the announcement explained.

The contracting team consists of Harris’ IT Services unit, Harris Communications Honduras, Charter Trading Company, STG Inc., and Smartronix.

Harris, of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
