Harris Wins Falcon III Tactical Radios Order
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received a $29 million order to provide “a nation in Asia” with Falcon III(r) wideband tactical radios.
The radios will provide the country's Armed Forces with critical country-wide data communications and improved mission capabilities as part of an overall modernization effort.
The nation is acquiring the company's new RF-7800H high-frequency wideband manpack and RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight radios.
The new RF-7800H is the world's first HF radio with high-speed wideband data capabilities. These advanced capabilities allow users to efficiently transmit large data files such as video images over very long range beyond-line-of-sight links. The radio is 20% smaller and lighter and offers data rates that are 10 times greater than other HF radios.
“Our RF-7800H and RF-7800W radios will enable these armed forces to operate with more detailed situational awareness than previous generations of radios,” said Brendan O’Connell President, International Business Unit, Harris RF Communications.
