Harris Corporation - Falcon II(R) and Falcon III(R) Tactical Radios for Poland

Harris Corporation : 30 April, 2009  (Application Story)
Land and Special Operations Forces Will Acquire Harris Multiband and HF Technology to Enable Communications Interoperability for U.S., NATO and Coalition Operations.
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a contract totaling $20 million from the Polish Ministry of National Defense (MoND) to deliver a combination of multiband and HF tactical radios for Poland's Land and Special Operations Command Forces.

Harris is providing Poland with a range of products from its industry-leading Falcon(R) family, including the AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld radio; the AN/PRC-117F multiband manpack radio and the AN/PRC-150(C) high frequency (HF) manpack radio. These radios will provide Polish forces with secure voice and data communications and provide seamless interoperability with U.S., NATO and coalition forces. All of the radios feature Harris software-defined architecture, enabling adaptability to changing mission requirements through software upgrades. In addition, the new technology will maintain interoperability with Harris legacy radios already deployed by Polish forces.

'The Polish armed forces are continuing to play a vital role in complex, multi-national peacekeeping missions around the world,' said Brigadier General Slawomir Szczepaniak, Director of the Armed Forces Procurement Department. 'This requires our troops to be equipped with the most reliable and capable communications equipment possible. Technology from Harris - as has been proven in past deployments - will ensure our forces have continuous secure communications amongst our own forces as well as with our allies in the field. This is the first large contract signed by Armed Forces Procurement Department, based on an FMS program using Polish national funds.'

Used by U.S. and allied forces around the world, the Harris(R) Falcon III(R) AN/PRC-152(C) is the most widely deployed JTRS-approved radio. The Falcon II(R) AN/PRC-117F(C) manpack radio will deliver multiband communications capability including advanced tactical satellite voice and data capabilities.

Polish forces will also be leveraging Harris secure HF technology with the Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) manpack - capable of providing reliable, beyond line-of-sight communications - making it ideal for use in obstructed mountainous environments or for long haul, reach-back requirements.

'Harris is honored to have been selected to deliver this suite of tactical communication solutions, helping empower Polish forces to work safely and effectively with their coalition partners,' said Dana Mehnert, president, Harris RF Communications.
