Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) will support the communications of the U.S. Army’s new Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) with their highband networking radios .

As part of Northrop Grumman’s IBCS team, Harris will supply its radios to carry critical battle-command information, and will provide system and network engineering services over the five-year life of the program.
