Harris Corporation has received $36 million in orders from US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to accelerate its deployment of an advanced wideband tactical communications system.

Harris has shipped more than 40,000 wideband manpack and handheld tactical radios worldwide. These radios currently are used by all branches of the US Department of Defense and allied forces worldwide.
