[Satnews] Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received a $21 million order from a Latin American nation for Falcon III® tactical radios that will be used to establish high data rate networks as part of a military communications modernization program.
The order includes manpack, vehicular and base configurations of the Harris RF-7800H wideband tactical radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments. The radio transmits voice, images and other larger data files over thousands of kilometers.
The nation also is acquiring handheld and vehicular configurations of the Harris RF-7850M multiband networking radio – the first international radio to simultaneously support wideband communications, mobile ad-hoc networking, and legacy narrowband waveforms.
“These radios address the customer’s requirements for high data rate communication networks to support a variety of complex military missions,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. “This order demonstrates their continued confidence in our tactical radio solutions.”
