Continues Weather Radar Program
The FAA awarded Harris
Corporation a 54 month, $57 million follow-on contract for the
Weather and Radar Processor (WARP) program on Tuesday. Harris will
bring in $188 million total by 2009 with this program.
Harris will provide complete hardware and software support for
the life of the program. Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs)
already have been using WARP. The system enables controllers to
view real-time graphical weather data at their positions.
"I remember how exciting it was when the WARP system was
declared fully operational by the FAA on December 31, 2002," said
Al Dukes, president of the Civil Programs business unit of Harris
Corporation's Government Communications Systems Division (GCSD) in
a news release. "We are very pleased that the FAA selected Harris
to continue to support this key initiative as part of the FAA's
modernization efforts. We are proud that Harris systems integration
expertise, weather technology, and systems support are enhancing
the safety of our nation's air traffic system."
WARP provides the tools for the FAA to take weather data from
several sources and combine them into a single, integrated display.
Harris was tasked with developing, procuring, installing, and
supporting WARP systems in the original contract back in 1996.
