L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a contract worth over $998 million for the production, retrofits, development and sustainment of the Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio Systems terminals, according to an announcement Monday.

The three existing terminals -- Concurrent Multi-Netting-4, Tactical Targeting Network Technology and F-22 variant -- will “continue to be procured, sustained and updated for future growth,” the announcement stated.

The contract includes purchases for the Navy, Air Force, MIDS program office, NATO and NATO nations under the FMS program.

MIDS-JTRS is funded by the Navy, and is the multi-channel, software defined MIDS variant -- the platform that uses a command, control, communications, computing and intelligence system to support surveillance and other objectives.
