Harris Corp., Melbourne, Fla., received a five-year, $30 million follow-on contract from Lockheed Martin to supply high-speed, fiber-optic network components for the U.S. Air Force F-22A Raptor aircraft program. The award brings the total value of the program for Harris to more than $280 million since 1991, the company said. In addition to the fiber optic components, Harris said it provides the fiber-optic lab test equipment for the program, as well as the aircraft’s Data Acquisition Unit. Also, Harris said it is developing avionics for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, including image processing and digital map software, multifunction data links, fiber-optic network interfaces and avionics infrastructure elements such as integrated avionics racks, power supplies and module components.
