Harris supports TRW on NMD communications

25 July 2001

Harris Corporation has been awarded a 6-year, $70 million contract by TRW to develop the In-flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS), which provides critical communications between ground command and control systems and ballistic missile interceptors, for the National Missile Defence (NMD) Programme. The contract value for Harris could rise to more than $130 million if the company is awarded a proposed option to produce the IFICS as part of the Battle Management Command, Control, and Communications (BMC3) element of the NMD Programme.

''Harris has been a key participant in the design and development of communications equipment for the NMD programme since the inception of the Strategic Defence Initiative,'' said Bob Henry, president, Harris Government Communications Systems Division (GCSD).

Under terms of the IFICS contract, Harris is designing, developing and testing prototype communications systems being installed at the Kwajalein Missile Range in the Marshall Islands and at Harris facilities in Palm Bay, Florida. In addition, work on the programme includes establishing a pilot production line.

The BMC3 products were tested successfully during the recent US missile defence system test, supplying key information to commanders and target data to the Interceptor that ultimately helped the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) to destroy its target.
