L3Harris Receives $297M Tactical Radio Contract Ceiling Increase from USSOCOM

  • Raises Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contract ceiling to $552 million
  • Enables advanced communications
  • Extends U.S. advantage via software updates for future capabilities and resilient waveforms

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has received a $297 million IDIQ contract increase for its Falcon® IV AN/PRC-167 radio systems from the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).  

USSOCOM increased the initial IDIQ ceiling from $255 million to $552 million. This follows two orders in Q4 2021 totalling $36 million, the latest in a series of full-rate production orders in support of the Next Generation Tactical Communications (NGTC) program.

“Reaching the original IDIQ ceiling 15 months following the first full-rate production order in 2021 illustrates the excellent rate of adoption of the AN/PRC-167, which is currently fielded by  U.S. Special Operations Forces,” said Chris Aebli, President, Tactical Communications, L3Harris. “The success of this program, and our long-standing relationships with USSOCOM, demonstrates L3Harris’ ability to take on the challenges faced by SOF operators and their platforms. We’re delivering solutions that provide more capability and resilience than any other systems.”
