Harris Corporation has received a $11 million order from a nation in the Middle East to supply the Harris RF-7800 series of Falcon III multiband, multimission radios as part of a continued modernization effort. The order was booked and shipped during the fourth quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2015.
The order includes the RF-7800H-MP wideband tactical manpack radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; and the RF-7850M-HH multiband networking handheld radio, the first international radio to offer wideband communications and mobile, ad-hoc networking along with legacy narrowband waveforms.
"These radios support the customer's operational requirements for simultaneous, secure voice and high-bandwidth data across a wide range of military missions,” said Brendan O'Connell, president, Tactical Communications, Harris Communication Systems. "Our continued investment in the Falcon portfolio, supported by our strong presence in the region, enables us to transition customers from legacy voice-dominated tactical radios to networked wideband tactical radios."
