L3Harris Gains $500M Federal Anti-Jam Modem Contract
Thursday, April 23, 2020 | Comments

The U.S. Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) awarded L3Harris Technologies a five-year, $500 million ceiling, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with an initial delivery order of $30.6 million for the Air Force and Army Anti-jam Modem (A3M).

A3M provides the Department of the Air Force and Army with a secure, wideband, anti-jam satellite communications terminal modem for tactical satellite communication operations. The contract and order were received in the first quarter.

“With the proliferation and growing sophistication of threats in the electromagnetic spectrum, it has become increasingly important to enhance protected communications capabilities for the warfighter,” said Dana Mehnert, president, communication systems, L3Harris. “The A3M technology solution enhances the warfighter’s ability to communicate critical data by maintaining resilient and secure satellite communications in highly congested and contested environments that include the presence of adversarial jamming.”

L3Harris will collaborate with SMC for the design, development, fabrication, integration, certification and testing of Block 1 modems for use in the Air Force Ground Multiband Terminal and the Army Satellite Transportable Terminal. The jam-resistant modems support SMC’s Protected Tactical Waveform technology, an antijam capability operating on military satellite communication terminals through the Wideband Global Satcom constellation.
