L3Harris was awarded a three-year FFP contract worth $ 115 million under the Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) arrangement for the Australian Defense Force’s Delphic – Cryptographic Modernization program. L3Harris will deliver tactical radios, waveforms, and extras that support emerging cryptographic modernization standards.
The company was also awarded a $ 118 million contract to provide advanced night vision goggle technology to enhance Army’s ability to find and deal with threats – increasing their situational awareness, mobility and safety. This award follows the successful delivery of L3Harris’ night vision technology for Tranche 1 of the Land 53 program in 2020.
The L3Harris will feature the Fused Night Vision System (FNVS), which combines the latest night vision capabilities – combining image intensification technology with thermal imagery to provide soldiers with enhanced situational awareness, targeting and identification capabilities in all battlefield conditions and light levels. When combined with the L3Harris battery pack, the FNVS sends critical battlefield information straight into the eyes of soldiers.
Both contracts include full in-country support and repair capabilities in Australia.
“This major modernization program extends L3Harris’ long-term partnership with the Australian Defense Force, supports mission requirements for advanced secure communications and night vision capabilities, and will also enhance our expanded technical support capabilities in Australia,” said Dana Mehnert, President of Systems Communications, L3 Harris.
