Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received a $7.2 million order to supply a nation in the Middle East with Falcon III® RF-7800S Secure Personal Radios and Falcon II® high-frequency manpack radios. The nation is acquiring the radios to provide Security Forces with high-performance line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications.
The Falcon III RF-7800S is a lightweight body-worn tactical radio that provides full-duplex voice and data communications over two kilometers.
Optimized for maximum performance across highly variable environments, the RF-7800S secure personal role radio provides continuous coverage in the 350 to 450 MHz frequency range. The radio offers dual push-to-talk capabilities and allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and video.
The Falcon II RF-5800H-MP provides beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications. The RF-5800H provides continuous coverage in the 1.6 to 60 MHz frequency band, enabling the warfighter to stay connected even in the harshest conditions, when line-of-sight communications are not an option. It offers advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers.
“Harris continues to expand its leadership position in the global tactical communications market with a broad portfolio of proven, mission critical solutions. The RF-7800S provides secure and reliable squad-level communications, while the RF-5800H enables warfighters to communicate in even the most challenging environments, such as mountainous terrain or dense urban areas,” said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
Earlier this week, Harris announced a $25 million order from another unspecified Middle East government for Falcon II® high-frequency tactical radios as part of a military communications modernization program. Harris will supply this country's armed forces with Falcon II® RF-5800H base stations, vehicular systems and manpack radios to provide beyond line-of-sight terrestrial voice and data communications.
