HarrisÂ Corp.Â subsidiaryÂ ExelisÂ has been awarded a potential five-year, $70.3 million contract to provideÂ 42 Precision Approach RadarsÂ to the U.S. Navy, Army and Air Force as replacements for AN-FPN-63(V) radar systems.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract also includes ancillary installation, uninterruptible power supplies and training support services for the three service branches, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The Exelis-built PAR systemÂ comprises a three-level weather display platform, a built-in-test monitoring tool and gallium arsenide-based transmit/receive modules and is designedÂ to provide approach landing and area surveillance support around airports.
