Sheldon Fox, Harris

Harris Corp. has won a $4 million Army prime contract to update air-to-ground radios at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, the company announced Friday.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quanity contract has one base-year and four one-year options.

Sheldon Fox, group president government communications systems, said Norway-based subcontractor Jotron AS will provide its A/G radio technology for aerial missions at the range.

Under the first delivery order, the companies will provide digital radios to support air traffic control communications for manned and unmanned sites at the range.

Work will occur at Harris’ manufacturing plant in Melbourne, Fla., also where the company is headquartered, and Jotron’s facility in Tjodalyng, Norway.

Harris recently added the Dominican Republic and Uruguay as international customers of its Liberty-STAR Voice Communication and Control System.
