 Harris Corp received a $15 million, 4 year follow-on contract to provide acoustic sensors for installation on the U.S. Navy’s Virginia-class submarines.

 
The sensors are designed to facilitate data sharing between the LWWAA system and the submarine’s combat platform for monitoring of ships and other vessels.
 
Jim Brunelle, director of undersea systems business at Harris, said the 10 new systems will accompany the 18 acoustic assemblies Harris has already delivered to the Navy for use on its submarines.
 
"These latest systems will join the 18 ship sets the company has already supplied for the Navy's newest and most capable submarines," said Jim Brunelle, director, Harris Undersea Systems business. "Harris' solutions protect our forces operating at sea and provide the situational awareness they need to succeed in their critical missions."
 
Harris expects to complete deliveries of the acoustic systems to Northrop Grumman, the prime contractor on the program, through December 2019
