MELBOURNE, Fla. L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract to deliver two Low-Frequency Active Towed Sonar (LFATS) systems to a NATO member.
The LFATS system is used on ships to detect, track, and engage all types of submarines. L3Harris designed the system to perform at a lower operating frequency against modern diesel-electric submarine threats.
The U.S. Department of Defense recently awarded this 26-month delivery order under VSE Corporation’s Foreign Military Sales contract with the Naval Sea Systems Command International Fleet Support Program Office.
