Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received a $7.2 million order to supply a nation in the Middle East with Falcon III® RF-7800S Secure Personal Radios and Falcon II® high-frequency manpack radios. The nation is acquiring the radios to provide security forces with high-performance line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications.
The Falcon III RF-7800S is a lightweight body-worn tactical radio that provides full-duplex voice and data communications over two kilometers. Optimized for maximum performance across highly variable environments, the RF-7800S secure personal role radio provides continuous coverage in the 350 to 450 MHz frequency range. The radio offers dual push-to-talk capabilities and allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and video.
The Falcon II RF-5800H-MP provides beyond line-of-sight 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. It offers advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers.
"Harris continues to expand its leadership position in the global tactical communications market with a broad portfolio of proven, mission critical solutions," said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications. "The RF-7800S provides secure and reliable squad-level communications, while the RF-5800H enables warfighters to communicate in even the most challenging environments, such as mountainous terrain or dense urban areas."
