Harris Corp.’s Henrietta-based RF Communications division has been awarded a $26 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to upgrade and maintain the U.S. Department of Defense Soldier Radio Waveform for wideband tactical communications.
The deal will add greater capabilities to the government agency’s waveform software and make it more widely available to U.S. forces, the company said. Under terms of the contract, RF Communications will deliver improved capabilities, maintenance and ongoing support over five years.
“Harris will apply its unique engineering and field expertise in wideband networking to enhance and evolve (the software) to meet today’s mission needs as well as tomorrow’s emerging requirements,’’ said George Helm, president of RF Communications’ Department of Defense business, in a statement. “In addition, we are also providing the Department of Defense with rights sufficient to invigorate competition, encourage innovation and accelerate fielding of radios running this important waveform.’’
