MELBOURNE, Fla. U.S. Naval Research Laboratory officials tasked Harris to provide electronic warfare (EW) technology and engineering services for the Advanced Decoy Architecture Project (ADAP). The three-year, single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is worth an estimated $54 million.
Under contract, Harris will provide the project payloads designed to lure missiles away from their intended targets. They will also provide research engineering services to help advance the Navy’s capabilities to meet present and future EW mission requirements.
"Programs like ADAP help ensure that the Navy's tactical EW capabilities remain at the cutting edge as the threat landscape continues to evolve," says Rich Sorelle, president, Harris Electronic Warfare Systems business unit.
