To advance product development and to further their long-term relationship, Harris Corp. has announced a strategic partnership agreement with Tektronix Component Solutions Inc.

For more than 13 years, Tektronix and Harris have worked together to develop and deliver quality, high-performance intra-aircraft communications systems for next-generation military aircraft, including the F-22A Raptor and F-35 Lightning II (Joint Strike Fighter). Individual products have included multichip modules, fiber-optic transmitters and receivers and electro-optic transceivers.

"We value Tektronix Component Solutions' dedication to quality and stability for long-term defense programs," said Ron Kerns, subcontracts manager, Harris. "The creation of this relationship reflects that value and our desire to turn a solid working relationship into a great partnership for the continued development of advanced communications systems."

The agreement intends to enhance collaboration, share technology and strategy development, improve program execution and enable greater growth for both companies. The two companies will also look to translate the communications expertise of Harris and Tektronix's microelectronics engineering skill to better meet evolving customer needs for greater performance while reducing size, weight and power.

"Harris is one of the most respected communications companies in the industry and we look forward to continuing our work with them," stated Tom Buzak, president, Tektronix. "By expanding our joint efforts, we expect to strengthen the combined value provided to our customers and to continue to deliver communication systems of the highest quality and performance."
