Harris Corporation will supply end-to-end communications systems for a Latin American border security program

Harris Corporation has been selected by SAVIS Tecnologia e Sistemas S/A to provide an end-to-end tactical communications system for SISFRON, which is the largest border security program in Latin America.

Harris will work with Savis Tecnologia e Sistemas S/A, an Embraer Defesa & Segurança subsidiary, to provide border security personnel with tactical voice, situational awareness and surveillance capabilities from Harris wideband radios. These radios deliver live video, tactical chat, and situational awareness to the lowest echelons. Savis is the prime contractor on the SISFRON program.

Harris will supply tactical communications subsystems, accessories, software, services and support for the pilot phase of SISFRON (Sistema Integrado de Monitoramento de Fronteiras), the integrated border monitoring system the Brazilian Army is developing across the western borders of Brazil.

This initial phase of SISFRON will provide surveillance and protection across approximately 650 kilometers of Brazilian border territory. SISFRON intends to cover the entire interior border of Brazil, which is more than 16,000 kilometers of territory that divides 11 Brazilian states and 10 neighboring countries.

The Harris tactical communications system consists of radios and accessories from across the entire Harris Falcon III® 7800 tactical radio family — including High-Frequency, Very-High-Frequency, Multiband, Soldier Personal Radio and High-Capacity Line-of-Sight radios. Harris tactical communications systems will be installed in vehicles, shelters and operations centers.

“Harris solutions will enable secure real-time voice, situational awareness and video communications across all echelons and provide border security forces with unprecedented command and control capability,’’ said Dana Mehnert, group president, Harris RF Communications. “This important program significantly expands our presence with the Brazilian Army in support of their communications modernization requirements.’’

Harris RF Communications is the leading global supplier of secure radio communications and embedded high-grade encryption solutions for military, government and commercial organizations. The company's Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications. Falcon III is the next generation of radios supporting the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide. Harris RF Communications is also a leading supplier of assured communications® systems and equipment for public safety, utility and transportation markets — with products ranging from the most advanced IP voice and data networks to portable and mobile single- and multiband radios.
