Harris supplying military radios to Morocco under FMS deal
Rochester, N.Y. (UPI) May 10, 2016 - Harris Corporation is to supply Morocco with tactical communications equipment under a five-year follow-on contract from the U.S. Army.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award is the result of a U.S. Foreign Military Sales agreement and carries ceiling value of $405 million.

Equipment covered includes export versions of the company's Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System, or SINCGARS; ground and airborne configurations of the SpearNet Team Member radio; associated products and spares; and training, installation and field service support.

Additional details of the award were not provided.

"Harris' SINCGARS and other tactical radios deliver situational awareness into the hands of the warfighter," said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. "This agreement expands the range of communications products and services Harris provides to international customers under FMS contracts."

Cubic Global Defense has joined an L-3 Communications team to conduct research and evaluation of warfighter readiness and training.

The L-3 team includes Ball Aerospace and Leidos.

Under a five-year cost-plus-fixed-fee contract worth $200 million, the Warfighter Readiness Research Division Contractor Team will develop technology to create wide-spectrum readiness capabilities that are architecture, network and domain agnostic.

The group will also create and validate an interoperable, secure training toolset to increase training fidelity; enable comprehensive cross-mission, performance-based debriefs; and reduce training/exercise overhead for the U.S. Air Force, Cubic Global Defense said.

"We look forward to working with AFRL researchers and our industry partners within the Warfighter Readiness Research Division Contractor Team to find and deliver the knowledge and skills our warfighters need to dominate their operating environment," said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Global Defense.

"As part of our NextTraining strategy, Cubic is focused on raising mission readiness and optimizing human performance for our customers to enable the most effective and efficient training methods."

The contract work is to be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Its completion is expected by January of 2023.

They are supposedly bound by a code of silence, but several of the US Navy SEALs involved in killing Osama bin Laden published accounts of the raid - to the dismay of fellow fighters who fret the disclosures could put future missions at risk. Demand is high for tell-all stories of how the SEALs killed America's Public Enemy No. 1, and the years since his death have seen a flow of films, boo ... read more
