The company delivered two, large simultaneous X-/Ka-band terminals and two transportable terminals each in a different configuration. The terminals passed rigorous testing to ensure they will withstand extreme vibration, temperature, humidity and exposure to rain, wind, ice, sand and electromagnetic pulse. The terminals were certified to operate with military satellite networks such as the Defense Satellite Communications System and the Wideband Global SATCOM system.
"The MET terminals have been tested and certified to the highest military standards," said
Harris now transitions into the production phase, when the company expects to deliver one terminal per month for the next four years. The company also will support field activities such as site preparation, installation, test, and operations and maintenance. As the prime contractor for MET, Harris is replacing up to 80 aging strategic satellite communications terminals worldwide.
