Harris Corp. has won a $50.5 million delivery order for advanced satellite communications terminals under the U.S. Army’s Modernization of Enterprise Terminals program.
According to a company statement, Harris is tasked with providing additional terminals, including large fixed X-/Ka-band terminals and transportable X-/Ka-band terminals, common electronics equipment, spares to support the fielding of the terminals and operator training.
Harris said the next-generation military satellite communications terminals will provide the worldwide backbone for military communications and missile defense systems.
“The MET terminal provides the warfighter with high-performance, cost-effective solutions for their MILSATCOM needs,” said Bill Gattle, vice president of aerospace systems, Harris government communications systems.
Harris has received $264 million orders under the $600 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity MET contract since 2009.
The program includes five base years and a five-year option period.
The project manager, defense communications and Army transmission systems manages the MET program.
Installations at Ft. Belvoir, Va., and Ft. Detrick, Md., have been completed. The terminals will interface with the new wideband global satellite constellation and legacy satellite systems.
