Harris, Jotron team to pursue FAA radio system contract

  • 10-Mar-2010 04:26 EST

Harris Corp. and Jotron AS have teamed up to pursue an anticipated five-year, $200 million U.S. FAA contract for next-generation radios that will support the agency's future air/ground communications needs. The companies are competing for Phase 2 of the FAA's Next Generation Air-to-Ground Communications System (NEXCOM) initiative. The FAA is seeking commercial off-the-shelf, very high- and ultrahigh-frequency radios for voice communications between FAA facilities and aircraft in the terminal and flight services environments. Harris also recently formed a partnership with Sunhillo Corp. to help accelerate the implementation of the FAA’s Next-Generation Air Transportation System in the U.S.—as well as similar programs in the European Union.
