Harris Corporation has been awarded a $25-million contract by Northrop Grumman for high-band networked radios for the United States Army's new Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS). The system is designed to integrate the fire-control networks of current and future air and missile defense systems, operating with any combination of sensors and weapons in an open-architecture environment. The Harris Highband Networking Radio (HNR) employs directive beam technology to achieve higher throughput over a self-forming and self-healing directional mesh network. The Harris HNR system is a part of the US Army's WIN-T Increment 2 program. Harris will supply radios for the five-year life of the program. As Wes Covell, President of Harris Defense Programs, explains, "Our Highband Networking Radio will provide the solid, yet mobile, communications backbone required to ensure critical information on the IBCS reaches the right location at the right time." IBCS will integrate a number of systems, including the Patriot missile, Improved Sentinel Radar, and Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor (JLENS) systems.
