Rich Sorelle: Harris Lands $54M Contract to Help Navy Build EW Decoys

HARRISHarris (NYSE: HRS) has been awarded a potential three-year, $54 million contract to help develop electronic warfare technology for the U.S. Navy to lure adversarial missiles away from naval ships.

The company said Thursday it will provide system engineering and technical services to the Naval Research Laboratory under the Advanced Decoy Architecture Project.

“Programs like ADAP help ensure that the Navy’s tactical EW capabilities remain at the cutting edge as the threat landscape continues to evolve, ” said Rich Sorelle, president of Harris’ electronic warfare systems business.

ADAP payloads will be built to replace the Nulka decoy platform currently in use by the Navy and Coast Guard as well as the Australian and Canadian naval forces, Harris noted.

Harris received the single-award contract during the first quarter of its 2016 fiscal year.
