Encore ... as U.S. Air Force Selects Harris Corporation, Again, to Support Ground-based Electronic Warfare Systems

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has again been selected by the U.S. Air Force to continue supporting ground-based electronic warfare (EW) systems and infrastructure that help protect warfighters around the world, validating the U.S. Air Force’s continued confidence in Harris technology and support capabilities.

Harris will provide mission-essential, ground-based EW systems support, helping to sustain Air Force space superiority. The project includes depot support and sustainment engineering, system upgrades and modifications, studies and analysis, transition of future systems, and operations support.

Chris Forseth, vice president and general manager, Harris Space Superiority stated that Harris will help maintain U.S. space superiority by providing ground-based, electronic warfare systems support to Air Force Space Command anywhere in the world.

The contract leverages Harris’ 25-year legacy of providing critical depot support, sustainment engineering, system upgrades and innovations to the Air Force and other customers. This includes most recently executing the Space Control Depot Support contract awarded in 2008, which exceeded $500 million in award value over 10 years.
