Harris announces new Middle East order
Harris Corporation has announced that it has received an $8 million order from a country in the Middle East for Falcon high-frequency manpack radios as part of its tactical radio modernisation programme. The company made the announcement 25 July 2012.
The company said the Falcon II RF-5800H will provide the unnamed nation's armed forces with beyond line-of-sight terrestrial voice and data communications. The RF-5800H is part of 'the most fully integrated HF radio family in the world', offering advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers.
According to a Harris spokesperson, ‘The RF-5800H delivers highly reliable and secure communications even in the most challenging mission environments, such as mountains and urban areas’.
