Harris Corporation has been selected by Boeing to supply the mission management open systems processor for the US Navy’s MQ-25 unmanned aerial refuelling programme, the company announced on 6 May.

Under the contract, Harris will provide the mission management processor in partnership with Boeing AvionX. 

The mission management processor manages sensor and communications functions on the MQ-25, providing the onboard processing capacity necessary to support advanced computing needs. Harris will provide hardware and firmware in conjunction with Boeing’s open systems architecture solution.   

The MQ-25 is the US Navy’s first operational carrier-based unmanned aircraft and is designed to provide a refuelling capability. The contract supports Boeing’s engineering and manufacturing development programme to provide four MQ-25 aircraft to the US Navy for initial operational capability by 2024.
