Harris claims US Army MNVR contract
Harris Corporation has been awarded the Mid-Tier Networking Vehicular Radio (MNVR) contract by the US Army. The IDIQ contract has a potential value of $140 million.
The MNVR will replace the Ground Mobile Radios that were being sought under the Joint Tactical Radio System programme before its cancellation.
Harris will supply a two-channel MNVR solution based on its Falcon III wideband networking technology. The company has delivered more than 45,000 Falcon III wideband radios worldwide.
The contract includes an initial order for up to 232 MNVR radio systems for the upcoming Network Integration Evaluation 15.1 in the fall of 2014.
