Harris Ships 1st GPS OCX Satellite Receiver, Encryptors to Raytheon Under Subcontract - top government contractors - best government contracting event

GPS-IIIHarris Corp. has shipped the first of 34 satellite receivers for the GPS Operational Control System to Raytheon after the former company completed an electromagnetic interference test of the initial hardware, Space News reported Thursday.

The Florida-based communications equipment provider also delivered to Raytheon's intelligence, information and services business 14 ground encryptors that will work to safeguard the GPS signal, Brian Berger writes.

Harris made the deliveries under a subcontract its Exelis subsidiary received from Raytheon in 2010, according to the report.

Raytheon received a potential $886 million prime contract from the U.S. Air Force in 2010 to build the new ground system for GPS satellites, Berger reports.
