Harris Corporation has been awarded a warhead replacement tactical telemetry module (WRTTM) order for telemetry modules to support the US Air Force (USAF) advanced medium-range air-to-air missile (AMRAAM).

Under the two-year $15m follow-on delivery order, the company will deliver 135 WRTTMs to the Air Logistics Center at Warner Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, US.

The AIM-120 AMRAAM missile is a new-generation beyond-visual-range (BVR) air-to-air missile that is capable of all-weather day and night performance.

The missile is designed to use the highly accurate, long-range target detection capabilities offered by the advanced radar systems of modern warplanes.
