L3Harris to Provide Processors for T-7A Jets Under $92M Boeing Contract

Aerospace company Boeing has awarded L3Harris Technologies a $91.5 million contract to provide trainer jet components.

Under the contract, L3Harris will supply mission-management processors for the U.S. Air Force’s T-7A Red Hawk. The processors can collate multiple data streams, making information gathered in-flight easier to decipher.

The processors can connect internal and external networks and link video feeds to flight displays to improve situational awareness. The solutions also host training simulations, L3Harris said Tuesday.

The component can be expanded to include extra payload slots and accommodate future needs. It is part of a digital and open-systems design for the T-7A that was developed to decrease maintenance and lifecycle costs while increasing operational reliability.

The Boeing-Saab T-7A Red Hawk is designed for the Air Force to train next-generation fighter and bomber pilots. It was produced using agile software development and an open architecture system to enable rapid development and future technology adoption.

L3Harris Technologies offers command and control, autonomous systems, ISR and other products and solutions that support operations across all warfighting domains, from sea to space and cyber. It serves clients in the defense, civilian government and commercial sectors.

L3Harris is headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, and has offices within and outside the U.S.
