Harris Corp. has won a $113 million contract to upgrade the Navy’s primary long-range, three dimensional defense radar.
This contract, awarded by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command, includes an initial $39 million order and three option years.
It was awarded under the Navy’s Radar Obsolescence and Availability Recovery program to upgrade AN/SPS-48E radars to the more advanced SPS-48G version, Harris said in a release.
This upgrade increases fleet readiness to address emerging threats and lowers the Navy’s total cost of radar ownership, Harris said.
