Harris's team receives Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems contract

Nov 26, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Harris Corporation has announced that a team led by the company has been selected for the Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems, or GTACS, contract, which was awarded by the US 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 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 US government agencies such as Homeland Security, with advanced communications solutions that range from wireless networking to tactical satellite communications and handheld JTRS-compliant radios.

"The GTACS contract vehicle makes it very efficient for customers to acquire a comprehensive mix of products and services from the Harris team," said Sheldon Fox, group president, Harris Government Communications Systems. "Harris and its partners will work together to provide advanced, networked communications systems that meet the critical needs of our warfighters and security agencies." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
