Harris to provide EW payloads to US Navy
Harris has been awarded a $27 million order to provide maritime electronic warfare (EW) payloads for the US Naval Research Laboratory’s Advanced Decoy Architecture Project (ADAP) programme, it was announced on 27 June.
The contract comes under a three-year, $54 million ceiling IDIQ contract, which the company received in September 2015.
The new order includes testing and engineering services to help meet current and future EW mission requirements. The ADAP EW payloads will be an upgrade to the existing Nulka decoy, currently in service with the US Navy and Coast Guard, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Canadian Navy.
Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems, said: ‘Decoys are an essential layer of shipboard protection, often serving as the last line of electronic defence. Harris ADAP payloads defeat the most sophisticated RF-guided anti-ship weapons with electronic techniques built upon decades of electronic warfare and countermeasure design experience.’
