Harris Falcon III Wideband Radios Heading Into Central Asia For Armed Forces

[SatNews] Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received an $18 million order from a nation in Central Asia for Falcon III® wideband tactical radios.

The radios will provide advanced voice and data capabilities for the country’s armed forces on the frontline. The order was received during the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
