Harris Corporation - $150m Falcon(R) Radio Orders


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Harris Corporation
: 17 January, 2008  (New Product)
Harris Corporation has announced Falcon(R) Radio orders exceeding $150 million. This includes orders under JTRS program CISCHR contract.
Harris Corporation has received several new orders for its Falcon family of radios worth $158 million. The orders came from multiple branches of the U.S. Department of Defense and cover a broad range of tactical applications:

* A $118 million order from the U.S. Army to supply Falcon II high frequency (HF) vehicular radio systems for HMMWV's and other vehicles. The purchase allows the Army, Army Reserves and National Guard to continue expanding their use of Harris HF tactical radios for mobile, beyond line-of-sight communications.

* Orders worth up to $26 million from the U.S. Air Force to supply JTRS approved Falcon(R) III AN/PRC-152(C) handheld tactical radio systems. The orders were placed under the previously announced $2.7 billion Consolidated Interim Single Channel Handheld Radio (CISCHR) IDIQ contract awarded to Harris by the Joint Program Executive Office for the Joint Tactical Radio System. The AN/PRC-152(C) offers users a wide range of capabilities such as SINCGARS interoperability, ultra high frequency (UHF) ground-to-ground line-of-sight communications, close air support and programmable encryption.

* A $14 million order from the U.S. Marine Corps for Falcon III AN/VRC 110 vehicular radio systems to support Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) and other tactical vehicles. The vehicle systems incorporate JTRS-approved AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radios. This is the third order under the $212 million Tactical Handheld Radio (THHR) IDIQ contract awarded last summer following a competitive bidding process.


'Demand for our Falcon radios remains robust and is driven by a broad range of customers within the U.S. Department of Defense as well as throughout our international markets,' said Dana Mehnert, president of Harris RF Communications. 'Our opportunity pipeline continues to be very robust and reflects our ability to meet the advanced communications requirements of our customers. We have further increased our production capacity to address the higher expected demand in the second half of
fiscal 2008 and beyond.'
