Harris selected for Australian battlespace communication system
Harris Corporation, which has its Australian headquarters in Brisbane, has been named the preferred tenderer for an integrated battlespace communication system for the Australian Defence Force.
Harris was selected by the Commonwealth of Australia for the Land 2072 Phase 3 program, which is a critical part of the Australian Army’s Networked Digitization Plan. The plan will modernize the Australian Army’s communications network – enhancing operational tempo and command and control.
Under the program, Harris will provide an integrated tactical communications network for voice and data services to tactical forces over line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight applications. The solution will include tactical radios and other systems and technology from Harris and other partner companies.
“This agreement reinforces Harris’ status as a trusted partner and continues our long-standing commitment to providing the Australian Defence Force with secure communications and networking solutions,” said Alan Callaghan, president and managing director, Harris Defence Australia. “Harris is proud to be part of such a pivotal program and to support the Australian Army’s continued modernization efforts.”
