Harris Corporation has received a follow-on production contract from Lockheed Martin to supply avionics systems for the US Air Force’s (USAF) F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft.

Under the $32.7m contract, the company will provide next-generation avionics infrastructure for the radar and Integrated Core Processor Electronics (ICP) on the aircraft.

The infrastructure and electronics will provide more efficient, higher-capacity avionic capabilities for the F-35, which is designed to replace the A-10, the AV-8 Harrier, the F-16 and the F/A-18 Super Hornet.

The company will also provide fibre-optic network solutions and power supplies for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

The latest contract includes the production of 32 additional F-35 aircraft and brings the total value of the F-35 programme to $500m.
