U.S. Air Force Awards Harris Corporation $11 Million AMRAAM Missile Telemetry Modules Follow-on Contract

MELBOURNE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a multi-year, $11 million follow-on order for Warhead Replacement Tactical Telemetry Modules (WRTTM) supporting the U.S. Air Force Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile. Under this newest order, Harris will deliver WRTTMs to the Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. The contract brings the overall value of the WRTTM program to Harris to more than $181 million since 1991.

“The proven performance, reliability and availability of Harris telemetry modules are key contributors to the long-standing success of the Air Force's Weapon System Evaluation program”

The AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) is designed to take maximum advantage of the highly accurate, long-range target detection capabilities offered by the advanced radar systems of modern-day warplanes.

During live test and training firings at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida, the Harris WRTTM has provided weapon system evaluators with critical flight and performance information about the AMRAAM, as well as command-destruct capability for the missile – from the time it is launched from F-15, F-16, and F-22 aircraft until impact.

“The proven performance, reliability and availability of Harris telemetry modules are key contributors to the long-standing success of the Air Force's Weapon System Evaluation program," said Sheldon Fox, group president, Harris Government Communications Systems. "The Air Force continues to recognize our delivery performance as WRTTM plays an important role in weapons evaluations and other warfighter initiatives."
