Harris Corporation
: 20 February, 2008  (Application Story)
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a $25 million contract from the Brunei Ministry of Defence to supply tactical radios, accessories and other equipment to the Combat Net Radio replacement program of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces. The contract was awarded following competitive field trials.
Harris will provide a range of equipment, including its new RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio, a lightweight wideband radio that delivers secure tactical communications to individual soldiers. The Royal Brunei Armed Forces also is purchasing the Harris RF-5800H and RF-5800V high-frequency and very-high-frequency manpack radios, as well as accessories, installation and training services.

'This program builds upon our long and valued relationship with the Armed Forces of Brunei and is part of Harris' push to deploy networked communications to improve situational awareness and force effectiveness worldwide,' said Ed Lockwood, vice president of international sales, Harris RF Communications. 'Our products will be used to provide a secure and integrated communications network linking the new Ministry of Defence Joint Operations Centre to regional base stations and other parts of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.'

The Harris RF-7800S offers unique, full duplex, dual-net voice capability, allowing up to three operators to talk simultaneously with an unlimited number of listeners. The radio's advanced waveform, coupled with the 350 to 450 MHz frequency band, ensures more than 2 kilometers range over open terrain and a superior ability to penetrate buildings and other structures.

The radio incorporates a built-in Standard Positioning Service (SPS) GPS receiver, allowing for real-time position tracking and messaging services. All transmissions are secured by standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or customer-unique Citadel(R) II digital encryption. With the standard rechargeable battery, the radio weighs less than 600 grams.

The Harris RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio is part of an expanding line of digital wideband tactical radios designed to broaden access to battlefield networking through secure two-way transmission of voice and IP data. The line includes the Harris RF-7800M Manpack Radio, a multiband, high-capacity data radio offering on-air rates up to 10 Mbps, as well as the Harris RF-7800W Broadband Ethernet Radio, a high-capacity line-of-sight radio, which provides high-bandwidth data transmission between command posts and forward operating bases at data rates in excess of 80 megabits per second in the 4.4 to 5.0 GHz band.
