Harris Loops Into U.S. Army Comms With Five Year Antenna Contract

[Satnews] Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received a five-year, $12 million IDIQ contract to provide high-frequency (HF) tactical radio antennas to the U.S. Army—the award was received during the company’s first quarter of fiscal 2016.

The Harris F-3134-AT003/5.

Under the contract, Harris will provide its RF-3134 HF full-loop antennas, which can be used for fixed installations or on vehicles, enabling HF communication on-the-move. The RF-3134 interfaces with the Harris Falcon® series of HF radios. The unit is lightweight and has a low physical profile, which makes installing and uninstalling easy to accomplish.

Executive Comment

“The HF full-loop antenna provides a combination of high bandwidth and signal efficiency that makes it ideal for on-the-move applications,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems.
