Harris Corporation has been awarded two indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts to supply the US Army with Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) vehicular appliqué systems.
Harris is among three other companies - Exelis, General Dynamics and Thales that were selected to compete for orders on the contracts, estimated $988 million. The Harris SRW appliqué systems will be part of the Army tactical network modernization program.
The Harris SRW appliqué systems consist of a Falcon III(R) wideband radio and small form factor wideband power amplifier. The systems provide seamless connections between soldiers, their command centers and higher headquarters. They deliver vehicular-based voice, video and data communications for enhanced situational awareness and command and control. Harris previously announced initial orders from the U.S. Army for the appliqué system in 2012.
"The network remains one of the Army's highest priorities," said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. "Our SRW appliqués deliver cost effective SRW communications in vehicular applications, connecting the soldier at the tactical edge to the network. The appliqués also address space challenges in Army vehicles that are unable to accommodate larger, manpack-based solutions."
In addition to SRW, the Harris appliqués also operate the SINCGARS and VHF/UHF line-of-sight waveforms, expanding interoperability with existing DoD radios and providing the Army with greater utility in combat.
