Harris Wins $291M for FAA NextGen Voice System

Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has won potential $291.6 million contract to provide a new air transportation voice system to the Federal Aviation Administration, the FAA announced Monday.

The contract contains five base years and five two-year options and is for the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen.

The FAA said the new National Airspace System’s voice system will provide ground-to-ground voice communications between air traffic controllers and air-to-ground voice communications between controllers and aircraft.

Harris will replace a 40-year old legacy system and help the FAA deploy the new system to air traffic control towers, terminal and en route facilities.

Future NextGen air traffic control facilities will also receive the new system, the FAA said.

The new system will have router-based telecommunications technology, designed for information sharing and monitoring between facilities.

Harris recently delivered a new radio system to the FAA for use in the Gulf of Mexico region.
