As part of this Integrated Tactical Area Communications System (ITACS) solution, the nation is acquiring Harris’ software-defined radios to provide mobile, net-centric capabilities to its armed forces.
The solution supports the latest wideband and narrowband networking waveforms and enables country-wide voice and data capabilities for critical missions. This allows forward-deployed teams to stay in constant communications with commanders at operating bases and headquarters.

The system dramatically improves situational awareness by creating a mobile tactical Internet that delivers voice, data and situational awareness across the country,” said Brendan O'Connell, President, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
