Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has been awarded a five-year, $500 million ceiling, single-award IDIQ contract from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to develop software that will enable NGA analysts and customers to search and retrieve data from intelligence systems faster and more efficiently than ever before.
