Harris Corp. has won a $9 million contract to upgrade the military’s Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW).
Under the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract, “Harris will incorporate features that make it easier and faster to port the SRW software to a wide range of radios, reducing development costs,” a company news release said. “Several features under contract will simplify the operation and management of the SRW network.”
The SRW upgrades will be placed in the Joint Tactical Networking Center Information Repository, which allows software to be reused by other tactical radios.
“The U.S. government is leveraging Harris’ leadership and expertise in tactical communications to provide the warfighter with greater operational capability in wideband networking,” said George Helm, president of the defense business division of Harris RF Communications. “These are the first of many enhancements that will strengthen the performance of SRW and address evolving mission requirements.”
