Harris Corporation has received a five-year, $765 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide tactical radios and ancillary devices to the US Navy and US Marine Corps, the company announced on 13 October.

Under this contract, the US Navy will procure radios including the Harris AN/PRC-117G, AN/PRC-152A and the new AN/PRC-160 wideband high frequency radio, and peripheral attachments, to support handheld, manpack, vehicular and base station mission needs. The new contract replaces a $300 million IDIQ contract that expired in August.

Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems, said: ‘This award stems from our successful long-standing track record of developing and delivering the most advanced family of tactical radios.

‘The award enables Harris to continue to meet the US Navy and US Marine Corps’ current and emerging needs so that they can successfully accomplish their missions around the globe.’
