F-35 Lightning II Avionics
Next Generation Capabilities for a Next Generation Fighter
Harris has been working with F-35 industry partners from the program’s inception through the aircraft’s first deployment in 2015 and will continue to support it into its operational life. Harris provides the F-35 with cockpit communications, data processing, sophisticated avionics and electronic warfare technology, as well as clean, pneumatic carriage and release racks that support the aircraft’s low observable profile. Communication, navigation and instrumentation antennas deliver situational awareness while advanced datalink protocols ensure data remains encrypted and secure. Harris avionics infrastructure and electronics are critical to providing more efficient, affordable and higher-performance capabilities than ever before, in keeping with the F-35’s status as the next generation standard bearer of U.S. global air power.
