Harris Corporation has received a three-year, $54 million ceiling, single-award IDIQ contract from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to provide electronic warfare (EW) technology and engineering services for the Advanced Decoy Architecture Project (ADAP). The contract was awarded during the first quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2016.
Harris will provide ADAP payloads designed to lure missiles away from their intended targets with advanced electronic techniques. The ADAP payloads are an upgrade to the existing Nulka decoy, currently in service with the U.S. Navy, Coast Guard, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Canadian Navy. Harris also will provide research engineering services to help advance the Navy’s capabilities to meet current and future EW mission requirements.
“Programs like ADAP help ensure that the Navy’s tactical EW capabilities remain at the cutting edge as the threat landscape continues to evolve,” said Rich Sorelle, president, Harris Electronic Warfare Systems business unit. “By supporting the rapid deployment of this new capability, Harris continues to demonstrate its commitment to Navy EW and mission success in the electromagnetic spectrum.”
