The company will supply additional terminals, including transportable X-/Ka-band and large fixed X-/Ka-band. Harris will also provide equipment racks, operator training and spares to support terminal fielding.
Harris said the next-generation military satellite communications terminals provide the worldwide backbone for high-priority military communications and missile defense systems.
“We continue to aggressively drive toward the key production and delivery milestones of this major program, which represents a new generation of strategic, multiband terminals, ” said Sheldon Fox, group president of Harris’ government communications systems. “These terminals provide critical reach-back capability for soldiers in the field who must access resources not available at their remote locations.”
