Harris announces Latin American award

11th April 2012 - 16:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris has announced that it has received $12.4 million in orders from an unnamed Latin American nation for a integrated wireless digital voice and data network that supports critical communication coordination between federal officials and armed forces. The orders, announced 5 April 2012, were received by Harris in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012.

The system integrates communication system and radio solutions from Harris’ tactical and public safety businesses. To provide secure communications that protect the customer strategic installations during natural disasters, Harris is delivering an integrated digital voice and data network that supports the integration of land mobile radio and tactical communications over a single integrated network.

Built on the Harris VIDA network and network management capabilities, the OpenSky mission-critical land mobile radio system will support public safety communications and seamlessly integrate and interoperate with tactical radio communications through NetworkFirst, the Harris interoperability gateway solution. The system provides fully integrated situation awareness via Harris FalconCommand software. For federal officials, Harris is providing rugged and secure P5400 portable and M5300 mobile radios.

Harris said it also will provide tactical radios from the Falcon II radio family, including the RF-5800H high-frequency manpack for beyond-line-of-sight terrestrial communications and RF-5800V handheld, a lightweight radio for VHF line-of-sight communications.
