L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) has secured a $95M low-rate initial production order to build additional AN/PRC-158 multichannel radios for the U.S. Army.
The radios will undergo operational tests after the LRIP phase to help Army personnel create a path forward for full-rate production efforts.
The Army looks to procure as many as 65K radios through the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
“AN/PRC-158 will equip soldiers with cutting-edge waveforms, providing resilient SATCOM and advanced wideband networking at the tactical edge,” said Dana Mehnert, president of communications systems at L3Harris.
The system uses a software-based architecture and designed to process classified and unclassified information.
