Harris Corporation has received an $11 million order from an African nation to supply its Falcon III® multiband, multi-mission radios as part of an ongoing modernization effort.
The order includes the RF-7800H-MP wideband tactical manpack radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; the RF-7850M-HH multiband networking handheld radio, the first international radio to offer wideband communications and mobile, ad-hoc networking along with legacy narrowband waveforms; and the RF-7800V-HH VHF Combat Net Radio (CNR), which provides the ability to communicate with greater speed and range, achieving information superiority on the battlefield.
“Harris’ Falcon III radios will support the customer's need for simultaneous, secure voice and high-bandwidth data across a wide range of military missions,” said Chris Young, President, Harris Communication Systems.
“Our strong presence in the region, coupled with our ongoing investment in advancing Falcon® solutions, enables us to transition customers from their legacy, voice-dominated tactical radios to networked wideband tactical radios,” he added.
Harris Corporation is a leading technology innovator, solving our customers’ toughest mission-critical challenges by providing solutions that connect, inform and protect.
