Harris Corporation has been selected as the prime systems integrator to modernize and upgrade an Asian nation’s military communications network, extending the company’s role as the country’s incumbent radio provider.


Harris will replace existing disparate systems and integrate both military and commercial products and software into an easy-to-operate turnkey solution. This integrated network will include a multi-service common operating picture, strategic satellite communications, IT modernization and Harris Falcon III® tactical radios.


The Falcon III® radios will provide secure voice and data communications and friendly force tracking at the tactical level. Harris’ hC2 Software Suite battle management system will improve command and control and create a common operating picture shared across services and echelons – providing enhanced situational awareness across the land, sea and air domains.


“This significant program win showcases Harris’ ability to integrate command and control networks, positioning us for additional international programs in the future. “Our solid track record, extensive capabilities and expertise in providing customized tactical solutions led to our selection as the prime systems integrator for this important project,” said Chris Young, President, Harris Communication Systems.


The selection reflects the company’s strategy of expanding beyond individual solutions to provide customers with integrated command and control systems, such as battle management systems for the United Arab Emirates and Australia.


Furthermore, Harris Corporation has been awarded a $161 million contract modification to supply the next production lot of electronic jammers to protect U.S. Navy and Australian F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft against electronic threats.


Harris will manufacture and deliver Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) jammers for the F/A-18C/D/E/F variants, with deliveries under the new contract expected to be completed by May 2021. The Harris ALQ-214(V)4/5 is the key onboard electronic warfare (EW) jamming system for the IDECM program, protecting the aircraft from electronic threats, including sophisticated integrated air defense systems.


This award is in addition to the $133 million production lot award received in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. The company has received more than $1 billion in awards to date from the Naval Air Systems Command for AN/ALQ-214 development and production and was recently recognized by the Navy for maintaining a perfect on-time delivery record over the entire 20-year life of the IDECM program.


“The 20-year flawless delivery record to the Navy is a remarkable achievement, and we look forward to supporting their critical missions for the next 20 years and beyond,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Harris Electronic Systems.


“Our investments and dedication to delivering IDECM systems has helped to keep naval aviators ahead of emerging threats and out of harm’s way,” he added.


Harris Corporation is a leading technology innovator, solving customers’ toughest mission-critical challenges by providing solutions that connect, inform and protect.


Harris supports government and commercial customers in more than 100 countries and has approximately $6 billion in annual revenue.


The company is organized into three business segments: Communication Systems, Electronic Systems and Space and Intelligence Systems.
