Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received a $15 million order to deliver its latest wideband handheld tactical radio to a country in the Middle East.
Harris is supplying this nation with the RF-7850M handheld, a multi-band, multi-mission radio that provides advanced tactical communication capabilities. The radio offers a new embedded interface that gives users access to a library of applications that provide situational awareness, tactical messaging, file transferring and radio configuration support from a standard web browser. The interface is fully customizable through a software-development kit, simplifying the process of creating and distributing new applications.
"The RF-7850M combines the portability of a handheld with much of the functionality and performance of a larger manpack in areas such as range, bandwidth and power output," said Brendan O'Connell, president, International business unit, Harris RF Communications. "The radio provides capabilities for sharing situational awareness feeds and command and control information while on-the-move, allowing commanders to make informed decisions in real time."
