Under the contract, Harris will provide the Distributed Targeting System to improve flight crew situational awareness.  

“Start of full-rate production is a key milestone in the F/A-18 E/F Network Centric Warfare Upgrades program,” said Ed Zoiss, vice president and general manager of Defense Programs, Harris Government Communications Systems. “Upgrading the mission- and image-processing prowess of the Super Hornet will help ensure that it continues to be the primary fighter aircraft for the U.S. Navy.”
