Harris Corporation wins US Army contract

27th April 2012 - 16:18 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation, along with Jotron AS, is to upgrade air-to-ground radios at the White Sands Missile Range. The work will form part of a five-year, $4 million US Army Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to modernise the communications infrastructure that supports aerial missions at the range.

According to Harris, the contract has a base period of one year with four option years. Under the first delivery order, Harris/Jotron is providing UHF and VHF digital radios for use in air traffic control (ATC) communications supporting the range’s manned and unmanned sites.

The IDIQ contract has no upper limiting quantity and the 7000 series radios meet all current and emerging US and International standards for ATC radios. Initial radio deliveries will be produced by Jotron at their facility in Tjodalyng, Norway. Future deliveries may be produced either at the Jotron facility or at the Harris production facility in Melbourne, Florida.

’We are combining the best of our respective technology and manufacturing expertise to address the specific COTS radio needs of the Army with our 7000 Series A/G, multi-mode digital radios,’ said Merete Berdal, chairman of Jotron AS, which is headquartered in Tjodalyng, Norway.
