Harris RF - Falcon HF System Order for US Army

Harris Corporation : 08 October, 2007  (Company News)
Harris Corporation has received a $104 million order from the U.S. Army for high-frequency (HF) radio systems. Under the agreement, Harris will provide the Army with Harris Falcon(R) II AN/PRC-150(C) HF radios and related accessories, as well as installation services and training. The contract is one of several recent orders by the Army of a broad range of Harris radio systems, highlighting the company's technological leadership in tactical communications.
'Harris HF radio equipment continues to set the standard for terrestrial, beyond-line-of-sight communications, enabling our forces to stay connected in remote areas and when surrounded by rugged terrain,' said George Helm, vice president and general manager, Harris RF Communications. 'The unique nature of HF signal propagation makes it ideal for medium- and long-range terrestrial radio communications. We're pleased that the Army is expanding its acquisition of Harris HF radios while at the same time purchasing new Harris products based on our legacy of innovation, reliability and support.'

The Falcon(R) II AN/PRC-150(C) is part of the broadest line of tactical radio communication products available today. The Falcon family offers features such as embedded encryption for information security, extended frequency range, adaptability to new waveforms and battlefield networking. The Falcon(R) III AN/PRC-152(C) is the first and only JTRS-approved radio to be certified as fully compliant with version 2.2 of the JTRS Software Communications Architecture. The Falcon family includes radios in all form factors: handheld, manpack, vehicular and personal radio.
