Harris Receives $29 M from Nation in Asia for Falcon III Tactical Radios

  • New high-frequency manpack radios offer superior data communications capabilities.
  • Radios can transmit large data files, such as images.
  • Agreement highlights Harris' continued leadership in wideband tactical data communications.

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received a $29 million order to provide a nation in Asia with Falcon III(r) wideband tactical radios. The radios will provide the country's armed forces with critical country-wide data communications and improved mission capabilities as part of an overall modernization effort.

The nation is acquiring the company's new RF-7800H high-frequency wideband manpack and RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight radios. The new RF-7800H is the world's first HF radio with high-speed wideband data capabilities. These advanced capabilities allow users to efficiently transmit large data files such as video images over very long range beyond-line-of-sight links. The radio is 20 percent smaller and lighter and offers data rates that are 10 times greater than other HF radios.


"Our RF-7800H and RF-7800W radios will enable these armed forces to operate with more detailed situational awareness than previous generations of radios," said Brendan O’Connell president, international business unit, Harris RF Communications.
