Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received a $9 million order from the US Army for Falcon II AN/PRC-150 high-frequency manpack radios.

The Army is acquiring the AN/PRC-150 to provide soldiers with superior long-haul terrestrial beyond-line-of-sight tactical communication capabilities. Widely deployed by US and NATO forces across the world, the AN/PRC-150 is the only Type-1 certified HF radio available today. The radio provides continuous coverage in the 1.6 to 60 MHz frequency range, delivering secure voice and data communications even in the harshest conditions.

"Harris is the world leader in high-frequency tactical communications. The AN/PRC-150 provides warfighters with critical long-range communications where line-of-sight is not an option," said Brendan O'Connell, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications.

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 US 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.
