American technology firm L3Harris has been awarded a $3.69 billion contract to supply portable radios and parts to the US Navy.
Under the five-year agreement, the company will provide handheld, manpack, vehicle-mounted, and base-mounted communication devices that meet requirements set by the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations.
The radios must operate at high, very high, and ultra-high frequencies and support the transmission of military data for emergency, line-of-sight, and integrated waveform communications.
“As an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, no funding will be placed on contract and obligated at the time of award,” the US Department of Defense said. “Operations and maintenance funding via the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps will be funded on each delivery order.”
Work for the contract will be performed in New York and is expected to be finished by February 2027.
