Harris announces Middle East ISR network contract

1st November 2013 - 06:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris has been contracted to provide an unnamed Middle East nation with a comprehensive coastal intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance communications network. The $11 million contract was announced on 31 October. 

Harris will supply its Falcon III RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radios, accessories and battle management application in coast guard vehicles and strategic installations on land, at sea and in the air. 

Users will be able to send and receive situational awareness and intelligence information across a secure mobile network, with squads and their commanders connected for real-time decision-making. If a threat is detected, local commanders will be able to coordinate air, ground and naval asset responses.

Brendan O'Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications, said: ‘This unique solution demonstrates Harris’ ability to deliver integrated tactical area communication systems that connect users wherever they are. Users will be able to communicate over longer distances and reach command centres from remote areas that lack telecommunications infrastructure.’
