Harris wins big order with US Army for satellite communications terminals, support services

The US military is once more tapping Harris Corp. to provide advanced satellite communications terminals under the banner of the US Army Modernization of Enterprise Terminals program.

The Company will manufacture and deliver satellite communications terminals worth $50.5 million. The US Army ordered both fixed and transportable terminals. These terminals will serve as the new backbone of strategic US military communications.

In addition, the US Army signed an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity MET contract with Harris. Not only will the Company produce and install the satellite terminals, but it will also provide depot and engineering services in support of those same SATCOM equipment.

The MET contract consists of a five-year base period and a five-year option period. It is potentially worth $600 million.

Harris Corp. provides communications and information technology to commercial and government customers in more than 125 countries. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Harris employs nearly 15,000 personnel and boasts of an annual revenue of $5.5 billion.
