L3Harris Technologies has been awarded contracts by the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) worth US$233 million to deliver secure communications and advanced night vision goggle technology. Both contracts include full in-country support and repair capabilities in Australia.

“These key modernization programs extend L3Harris’ long-term partnership with the Australian Defence Force, supporting mission needs for advanced secure communications and night vision capabilities, and will also leverage our expanded technical support capability in Australia,” said Dana Mehnert, President, Communication Systems, L3Harris.

To deliver the ADF’s Delphic – Cryptographic Modernization programme, L3Harris was awarded a three-year, $115 million follow-on FFP contract under the Direct Commercial Sale (DCS) arrangements.

The American firm will also deliver tactical radios, waveforms and ancillaries that support emerging cryptographic modernization standards.

L3Harris will also deliver on a US$118 million contract to provide advanced night vision goggle technology to enhance Australian Army, following the company’s successful delivery of night vision technology for Tranche 1 of the Land 53 programme in 2020.

The company will deliver its Fused Night Vision System (FNVS), which incorporates the latest in night vision capabilities – fusing image intensification technology with thermal imagery to provide soldiers with enhanced situational awareness, targeting and identification capability in all battlefield conditions and light levels.
