WASHINGTON, D.C. [AUSA] — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) was selected by the U.S. Army to deliver advanced systems that will provide secure communications between manned and unmanned aircraft and ground forces.
L3Harris is the only company providing Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUMT) Airborne Data Link Systems for the Army’s AH-64 Apache attack helicopters, having delivered 256 systems to date. The systems allow forces to share real-time, full-motion video and data between Apache aircraft and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), such as the Army's Shadow and Grey Eagle aircraft, and integrated battlefield networks, enhancing decision making and mission effectiveness.
L3Harris' MUMT solution offers major advancements in resilient and protected networks and high data rates, leveraging a modular open standards system. In addition to receiving high-bandwidth ISR video from UAS, Apache crews can assume control of autonomous aircraft and their payloads.
“The MUMT system provides a unique capability for new warfighting strategies and tactics, combining multiple assets and platforms for multi domain use," said Brendan O’Connell, President, Broadband Communication Systems, L3Harris. "Adding new MUMT capability to the Apache fleet will provide greater situational awareness and combat effectiveness across the battlefield."
