MELBOURNE, Fla. -- February 5, 2013

Representatives from the world’s leading airspace management organizations
will learn how new technology can connect them seamlessly during presentations
made by Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) technology experts at the inaugural
World ATM Congress 2013. The conference, to be held February 12-14 in Madrid,
will serve as a forum for air navigation service providers and industry

Aviation communications experts from Harris have been selected to lead a panel
discussion and address attendees during two sessions that focus on
implementing globally interoperable communications technology for air traffic
management (ATM). The sessions are:

“SWIM: NextGen, SESAR and Global Harmonization for ATM Stakeholders,” February
12, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m., ATM Theatre. David Almeida, director of FAA Programs for
System Wide Information Management  (SWIM) and Weather Information Systems for
Harris Mission Critical Networks, will lead a panel discussion about how open
system architecture and SWIM technology, when integrated among aviation
stakeholders, enable seamless interoperability. With SWIM, airlines will be
able to communicate with any ATM organization in any country with ease,
resulting in enhanced efficiencies and reduced costs.

Panelists include Steve Bradford, chief scientist and NextGen architect for
the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); Marc Brochard, SWIM engineer for
Eurocontrol; and Ian Painter,U.S. managing directorforSnowflake Software.
Robert GoldmanfromDelta AirLineswill also participate in the panel
discussion. Based on their unique perspectives, these industry experts will
discuss the outcome of an international demonstration on collaborative
decision-making, including benefits and findings.

“IP-based Voice Communications,” February 12, 12:45 – 1:15 p.m., Exhibit Hall
Spotlight Stage. Alain Tremblay, senior engineering director for Harris
Mission Critical Networks, will discuss Harris' new IP-based voice
communication system, VCS21, which was recently procured by the FAA as part of
its National Airspace System Voice System contract. The session will explain
how this secure, native-IP voice enterprise solution – which creates a modern
voice network for critical communications between air traffic controllers,
pilots and ground personnel – will support critical NextGen objectives,
including air traffic control facility load sharing, business continuity
planning, and facility consolidation.

The World ATM Congress is sponsored by the Civil Air Navigation Services
Organisation, in association with the Air Traffic Control Association, and is
backed by leading air navigation service providers and industry suppliers.
