Harris Wins Potential $255M IDIQ to Replace USSOCOM Legacy Manpack Radios

Harris (NYSE: HRS) has won a potential six-year, $255 million contract from the U.S. Special Operations Command to build a manpack radio system that will replace current radio models such as AN/PRC-117F and AN/PRC-117G.

The Defense Department said Monday the company will provide a Next Generation Manpack Radio system to help facilitate two-channel communications between special operations forces.

STC NGMP will be designed to receive and disseminate intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data through full motion video as well as support simultaneous dual channel line-of-sight or beyond line-of-sight operations, DoD added.

Harris will perform work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract at a company facility in Rochester, New York facility through June 2023.

USSOCOM obligated $1,050,000 at the time of award from its fiscal 2017 procurement funds.
