MELBOURNE, FL, November 7, 2012— A team led by Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has been selected for the Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems (GTACS) contract, which was awarded by the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office—Command Communications and Control.
Harris was one of 20 prime contractors selected to compete for work under the five-year, $10 billion Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract, which enables both defense and civilian federal agencies to quickly and cost-effectively procure a wide range of tactical communications products, systems and engineering services.
Under GTACS, the Harris team will pursue opportunities to supply the Department of Defense, as well as U.S. government agencies such as Homeland Security, with advanced communications solutions that range from wireless networking to tactical satellite communications and handheld JTRS-compliant radios.
