Harris Corporation Awarded $291 Million Contract
Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has been awarded a 15-year, $291 million contract to provide the communications network that will serve as the cornerstone of NextGen -- the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) initiative to transform the U.S. air traffic control system to meet future requirements.
Under the National Airspace System Voice System (NVS) contract, Harris will provide a secure, Internet Protocol-based voice communications network based on its VCS21 family of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) voice communication solutions. NVS will be installed in air traffic control (ATC) facilities across the U.S., creating a modern voice network for critical communications between air traffic controllers, pilots and ground personnel.
