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

Harris Corporation (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 appliqué 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 appliqué systems will be part of the Army tactical network modernization program.

The Harris SRW appliqué 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 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.

Harris RF Communications is the leading global supplier of secure radio communications and embedded high-grade encryption solutions for military, government and commercial organizations. The company’s Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications. Falcon III® is the next generation of radios supporting the U.S. military's JTRS requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide. Harris RF Communications is also a leading supplier of assured communications® systems and equipment for public safety, utility and transportation markets — with products ranging from the most advanced IP voice and data networks to portable and mobile single and multiband radios.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
