New Systems in Kenai and Anchorage Are Part of $69 Million Program to Update FAA Microwave Network across National Airspace
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 30 — Harris Booth #400 — Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), working within the scope of its FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) program, recently received Federal Aviation Administration acceptance of the first two systems of a new terrestrial microwave network. The first two systems — part of a 21-system network — are in Kenai and Anchorage, Alaska. The systems are part of a seven-year $69 million program in which Harris, working with the FAA, is providing a new terrestrial microwave network that will provide assured communications services in areas where it is difficult
or near impossible to use traditional telecommunications lines. The project began last November and is part of the FAA’s overall
communications capabilities upgrade under the FTI program.
