(By Balaseshan) Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS), a communications and information technology (IT) company, said it has received orders totaling about $12 million to supply Falcon tactical radio systems and field support to two countries in Africa.

The radios will be used to provide line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical voice and data communications to armed forces personnel. The order was received in the first quarter of Harris' fiscal 2013.

Harris will provide these nations with Falcon III RF-7800V VHF and Falcon II RF-5800H HF tactical radio systems, along with training, installation and field support services. The orders include base stations, vehicular systems and manpack and handheld radios.

The RF-7800V family covers the 30 MHz to 108 MHz frequency range and supports data rates up to 192 Kbps, making it the fastest combat net radio available today. The RF-7800V also provides time-critical BMS reports, while delivering simultaneous networked voice and data communications to multiple users.

The Falcon II RF-5800H-MP provides beyond line-of-sight terrestrial 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.

The RF-5800H offers advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers.

This order further solidifies the Falcon family as the international standard for tactical communications," said Brendan O'Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications.

HRS is trading down 1.34% at $48 on Monday. The stock has been trading between $33.24 and $52.23 for the past 52 weeks.
