Large order for wideband tactical radios

Harris Corporation : 04 April, 2014  (Application Story)
Foreign nation places order with Harris for the Falcon III wideband tactical radio for improving real-time communications for command and control
Large order for wideband tactical radios

Harris Corporation has received $82 million in orders from an international customer for radio communication systems that enable enhanced command and control and real-time situational awareness.

The nation’s armed forces are acquiring Falcon III® RF-7800H wideband high-frequency (HF) and RF-7800V very-high-frequency (VHF) radios in handheld, man-portable, vehicular and tactical base station configurations. These systems provide wideband tactical networking to the edge of the battlefield, as well as interoperable line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight voice and data communications. The systems allow forces to communicate securely and more immediately with their command structure, enabling more informed decisions.

"Our secure tactical communication products and system solutions enable armed forces to deploy quickly and manage missions in real time," said Brendan O’Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications. "The Harris solution allows headquarters staff to monitor and coordinate forward operating units, dismounted troops, vehicles and airborne assets. These systems have applications in a wide variety of scenarios, including corps-sized maneuvers, border control and disaster relief."

The Falcon III RF-7800H is transforming HF tactical communications. The radio is the first to enable users to send images and other battle management data over high-frequency beyond-line-of-sight environments faster than they could through satellite communications. The RF-7800H is 20 percent smaller and up to 10 times faster than legacy HF radios and is fully compatible with widely deployed Harris Falcon II® HF radios and accessories.

The RF-7800V family delivers performance and flexibility unmatched by any other VHF combat net radio platform. Highly portable and easy-to-use, the RF-7800V allows forces to operate effortlessly across the network-centric battlefield.

Harris RF Communications is the leading global supplier of secure radio communications and embedded high-grade encryption solutions for military, government and commercial organizations. The company's Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications. Falcon III is the next generation of radios supporting the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide. Harris RF Communications is also a leading supplier of assured communications® systems and equipment for public safety, utility and transportation markets — with products ranging from the most advanced IP voice and data networks to portable and mobile single- and multiband radios.
