Harris Wins Middle East Order for Falcon II® Radios
Harris Corporation has received an $8 million order from a country in the Middle East for Falcon® high-frequency manpack radios as part of its tactical radio modernization program.
The Falcon II® RF-5800H will provide this nation's armed forces with beyond line-of-sight terrestrial voice and data communications. The RF-5800H is part of the most fully integrated HF radio family in the world, offering advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers.
“The RF-5800H delivers highly reliable and secure communications even in the most challenging mission environments, such as mountains and urban areas. We have delivered more than 100,000 Falcon II HF manpack radios, which provide security forces with long-distance voice and data links that lead to enhanced situational awareness and command and control,” said Brendan O’Connell, President, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
Harris’ Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications. Falcon III is the next generation of radios supporting the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide.
