Harris awarded $12 million IDIQ contract to supply high-frequency, tactical radio antennas to US Army
Harris Corporation of Melbourne, FL announced on October 26 that it has received a five-year, $12 million IDIQ contract to provide high-frequency (HF) tactical radio antennas to the U.S. Army. The award was received during the company’s first quarter of fiscal 2016.
Under the contract, Harris will provide its RF-3134 HF full-loop antennas, which can be used for fixed installations or on vehicles, enabling HF communication on-the-move. The RF-3134 interfaces with the Harris Falcon® series of HF radios. It is lightweight and has a low physical profile, which makes it easy to install and uninstall.
“The HF full-loop antenna provides a combination of high bandwidth and signal efficiency that makes it ideal for on-the-move applications,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. “Harris continues to provide advanced radios and related systems to meet the real-time communications needs of our nation’s warfighters.”
