L3Harris Names 5 NATO Teammates for Airborne Warning and Control System Solution

  • Teaming for study on Alliance Future Surveillance and Control Program
  • Platform agnostic approach could enhance NATO military advantage past 2035
  • Integrates five international defense and technology companies with "shared vision"

L3Harris (NYSE:LHX) has announced its five team members to bid on the Alliance Future Surveillance and Control (AFSC) program, designed to help NATO replace its Airborne Warning and Control System by 2035.

The team is developing “system-of-systems” options for surveillance and control capabilities across all domains for NATO’s AFSC program. These options provide better intelligence and more responsive control by enabling sensors and systems to share information in air, ground, maritime or space.

The L3Harris team includes defense and security electronics pioneer Hensoldt (Germany); the global, technology-forward solutions company Jacobs (United Kingdom); ground/maritime battle management and command and control leader General Dynamics (Canada & Italy); modeling and simulation synthetic environment leader CAE (Canada); and air command and control (C2), tactical data links and satellite connectivity from global communications leader Viasat (United States).

"The L3Harris team has a shared vision – center on the data enterprise or digital backbone via procurement and integration of a multi-domain AFSC capability,” said Charles R. “CR” Davis, Vice President, L3Harris International. “With collaboration and innovation at the heart of everything we do, the integrated team harnesses the strengths of world-leading experts and leverages decades of diverse experience across all domains.”

The international team will analyze the risks and feasibility of candidate systems-of-systems to enhance the NATO Alliance’s military advantage to 2035 and beyond. The L3Harris team has a unique platform-agnostic approach to NATO’s feasibility study, enabling the delivery of a transformational concept with actionable recommendations.

L3Harris and teammates delivered a High Level Technical Concept (HLTC) study to NATO in 2020. The HLTC focused on data-centric architecture, all aspects of multi-domain surveillance, and control over the full spectrum of benign, permissive, contested and denied operational environments.
