Military radio manufacturers Harris Corp. and Rockwell Collins have landed contracts collectively worth $53.6 million to supply electronics spare parts for legacy military radios.

Officials of the Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime segment at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., announced a $22.5 million contract to the Harris RF Communications segment in Rochester, N.Y., for Single-Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) circuit card assembly parts.

The Naval Supply Systems command Weapon Systems Support division in Philadelphia announced a $31.1 million contract to Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for AN/ARC-210 weapon-replaceable assembly and repair.

The AN/ARC-210 Gen V programmable digital aircraft radio from Rockwell Collins provides two-way, multi-mode voice and data communications over frequencies from 30 to 512 MHz, covering UHF and VHF bands with AM, FM, and satellite communications (SATCOM) capabilities. The ARC-210 radio also includes embedded anti-jam waveforms, including Have Quick and SINCGARS, and other data link and secure communications features for battlefield interoperability and transfer of data, voice, and imagery. The radios communicate with other avionics over a MIL-STD-1553 data bus.

Harris will do the work on its contract in Rochester, N.Y., and should be finished by July 2021. Rockwell Collins will do its work in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, and should be finished by July 2021. The contract has options that could increase its value to $67 million and its duration to July 2026.
