FAA To Harris: WARP

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.
