(By Balaseshan) Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) said it has received an order worth $7 million to deliver Falcon tactical radio systems to a nation in Central Asia, to address communication requirements for upcoming international missions.
The radios will provide interoperable communications to support the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. The radios will address battalion requirements for high-frequency, wideband and multiband communications.
The Asian country is acquiring radios from across the Falcon portfolio, including the Falcon IIIRF-7800S Secure Personal Radio (SPR), RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio, Falcon II RF-5800M handheld and RF-5800H manpack radios.
The SPR is a lightweight, secure soldier radio platform that offers full-duplex voice, multiple talk-group capabilities and data rates up to 256 Kbps. The SPR allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and even video with unlimited listeners over a range of more than two kilometers.
The RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio has been providing a vehicular-based wideband networking solution to the armed forces of more than 30 countries since 2007. The radio establishes a wideband backbone architecture for delivering secure voice and high-speed networked data services, including the use of common applications, across all levels of the battlefield.
The RF-5800H delivers highly reliable and secure beyond-line-of-site terrestrial communications to the most demanding environments, such as mountains or urban areas. The RF-5800M-HH is an advanced, multiband, multimission handheld radio that provides reliable tactical communications through secure voice and data capabilities.
