Harris Corp. RF Communications Division of Rochester, NY, received a maximum $75M firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for High Frequency Manpack Radios (HFMR AN/PRC-150C), components, spares, and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) training. The AN/PRC-150 provides long-range, tactical communications. It includes advanced voice and data encryption options, plain-text interoperability with VHF radios, and a high-speed data rate. It is considered a component of "signal transformation" within the military. Work on this contract will be performed in Rochester, NY (85%) and various training locations (15%), and is expected to be completed March 2009. The Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, VA issued this sole source contract (M67854-05-D-7015).
