Harris has received an order from the US Army for use of its high-frequency (HF) full-loop antenna systems in an artillery command and control application.

According to the $14.6m order, the US Army will use the antenna systems as part of the high-mobility artillery rocket system, which is widely used during operations in Iraq.

The full-loop antenna is lightweight, easy to install and enables field personnel to deliver targeting commands to the missiles through long-distance HF voice and data radio links.

The antenna increases system mobility and allows HIMARS missile batteries to be deployed over wider geographic areas.
