April 24, 2020
MELBOURNE, Fla. L3Harris Technologies has won a five-year, $500 million ceiling, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract — with an initial delivery order of $30.6 million -- with the U.S. Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) to supply the Air Force and Army Anti-jam Modem (A3M).
A3M is in use by both the Department of the Air Force and Army, as it provides a secure, wideband, antijam satellite communications terminal modem for tactical satellite communication operations.
L3Harris is set to collaborate with SMC on the design, development, fabrication, integration, certification, and testing of Block 1 modems for use in the Air Force Ground Multiband Terminal and the Army Satellite Transportable Terminal. The modems support SMC’s Protected Tactical Waveform technology, an antijam capability operating on military satellite communication terminals through the Wideband Global Satcom constellation.
