[SatNews] Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received an order to supply communication systems to the Air National Guard (ANG) for crucial ground-to-air communications during wartime and domestic emergency responses, including natural disasters.
The five-channel vehicle communication systems leverage Harris’ advanced wideband tactical radio and systems integration capabilities to provide voice and data across the mission area. The systems include Harris’ Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radios, the RF-7800I advanced vehicle intercom system and a Unity® XG-100M full-spectrum multiband mobile radio. The AN/PRC-117G is the first and only widely deployed tactical wideband networking radio that offers secure interoperability with the broad suite of U.S. ground, airborne and satellite based communication assets. Harris also will provide installation, training and ongoing service and support.
“This system highlights Harris' unique ability to integrate tactical and land mobile radio systems that bridge the needs of tactical and civilian responders,” said George Helm, president, Department of Defense Business, Harris RF Communications. “The system will allow the ANG to quickly respond to calls for assistance, establish communications, and coordinate missions with local authorities.”
