Harris has been awarded the Canadian short term satellite communications upgrade (STSCU) contract for shipboard satellite communications terminals.
Under the contract, the company will deliver terminals that offer X and Ku-band capabilities and increased bandwidth onboard Canadian Navy ships.
The increased bandwidth will provide enhanced connectivity to the internet, video and other high-speed, broadband services while also supporting strategic military communications.
The terminals will reduce expensive dial-up lease costs while equipping the Canadian Navy with affordable, global access to a variety of military and commercial satellite networks.
The contract represents the company's first international sale of maritime wideband terminals.
