L3Harris named on US Army cyber contract
L3Harris Technologies has been named on the US Army’s R4 Electronic and Cyber Warfare IDIQ contract.
The R4 programme aims to develop and maintain the army’s lethality in non-kinetic engagements by employing cyber-electromagnetic activities (CEMA) effects in multi-domain operations. The programme includes the delivery of new cyber and CEMA capabilities as well as the upgrade of existing systems including training, documentation and support.
L3Harris Technologies will compete for task orders for the programme.
Ed Zoiss, president, L3Harris Space and Airborne Systems, said: ‘L3Harris brings enhanced and integrated C4ISR and spectrum dominance solutions to the market. R4 provides a strategic contract vehicle for L3Harris to provide state-of-the-art cyber solutions that meet the army’s present and future needs.’
