Harris Canada Inc., a subsidiary of Harris Corp., recently opened its Calgary, Alberta, avionics operation, following a $2.3 million investment to enhance the facility. The Harris facility supports the work to be completed under the company's six-year, $273 million (CAD) services contract with the Government of Canada for the CF-18 Avionics Optimized Weapon System Support (OWSS) program. At 36,700 ft², the facility is now 35% larger—providing a secure lab for testing classified equipment, a significantly larger warehouse complete with a shipping and receiving dock, a reception area, and space to support planned growth. In addition to the refurbishment, Harris invested more than $1 million in a fully integrated software suite to provide supply chain management, production control, and configuration management solutions to deliver advanced support to the CF-18 Avionics program.
