Highlights:

  • Provides decoy systems for Naval Research Laboratory’s ADAP program
  • Represents an order under 2015 $54 million electronic warfare IDIQ contract
  • Accelerates replacement of existing Nulka decoy with Harris-developed EW payload

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received a $27 million order to deliver maritime electronic warfare (EW) payloads for the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Advanced Decoy Architecture Project (ADAP) program.  The order was received during the fourth quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2016.

The order, issued under a three-year, $54 million ceiling IDIQ contract received in September 2015, also includes testing and engineering services to help meet current and future EW mission requirements.  The Harris-developed ADAP EW payloads represent an upgrade to the existing Nulka decoy, currently in service with the U.S. Navy, Coast Guard, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Canadian Navy.

“Decoys are an essential layer of shipboard protection, often serving as the last line of electronic defense,” said Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems.  “Harris ADAP payloads defeat the most sophisticated RF-guided anti-ship weapons with electronic techniques built upon decades of electronic warfare and countermeasure design experience.”
