Harris Corporation Awarded IDIQ Contract from U.S. Army for Vehicular SRW Appliqu� System

MELBOURNE, Fla. & ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

Harris Corporation (News - Alert) (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded two indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts to supply the U.S. Army with Harris Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) vehicular appliqu� systems.

Harris is one of four companies that were selected to compete for orders on the contracts, which have a potential total value of $988 million. The Harris SRW appliqu� systems will be part of the Army tactical network modernization program.

The Harris SRW appliqu� systems consist of a Falcon III® 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 appliqu� 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 appliqu�s deliver cost effective SRW communications in vehicular applications, connecting the soldier at the tactical edge to the network. The appliqu�s also address space challenges in Army vehicles that are unable to accommodate larger, manpack-based soluions."

In addition to SRW, the Harris appliqu�s 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.
