Harris bags $5.6 million order from overseas customer for falcon tactical radios

Harris Corporation has received a $5.6
million order to provide Falcon II radios that will deliver tactical
communications to an international customer’s armed forces.

The orders include Falcon II RF-5800H
high-frequency (HF) and RF-5800V very high-frequency (VHF) radios.

The RF-5800H is part of a fully integrated HF
radio family. The radio delivers beyond line-of-sight terrestrial
communications in the most demanding environments and provides features such as
third generation-Automatic Link Establishment (3G-ALE), integrated data link
protocols and embedded GPS receivers.

The RF-5800V VHF handheld is a lightweight
digital combat net radio for squad-level communications. The radio provides
frequency-hopping using Quicklook 1A, secure digital voice, advanced repeater
capabilities and Citadel II encryption.

“These orders are part of a multi-year
contract supporting this customer’s tactical radio modernization program,” said
Brendan O’Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
