Harris Falcon Radios To Bring Comms Interoperability To European Customer

The Harris AN/PRC-152A Wideband Networking Handheld Radio.

Harris (NYSE:HRS) has received two orders totaling $29 million to provide its Falcon® family of tactical radios to a customer in Europe as part of an ongoing standardization program designed to ensure interoperability during coalition operations—the orders were received during the third quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2016.

Harris will supply AN/PRC-152A Wideband Networking Handheld Radios, which provide simultaneous, secure voice and high-speed networked data; AN/PRC-117G Multiband Networking Manpack Radios, which support multiple missions by combining wideband networking, SATCOM and legacy narrowband interoperability in a single, lightweight package; and AN/PRC-150C HF/VHF Tactical Radios, which provide secure, long-range voice and data communications.

The radios, according to Chris Young, the President of Harris Communication Systems, offer wideband networking capabilities to give warfighters improved situational awareness and access to a common operating picture, as well as ensuring interoperability with US and NATO forces.
