Harris Corporation receives Falcon order
Harris Corporation has received an order to provide Falcon II radios that will deliver high-performance tactical communications to an international customer’s armed forces. According to the company, the orders include Falcon II RF-5800H high-frequency (HF) and RF-5800V very high-frequency (VHF) radios.
According to Harris, the RF-5800H is part of the most fully integrated HF radio family in the world.

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.
The company said the order, worth a total of $5.6 million, is a multi-year contract supporting the customer’s tactical radio modernisation programme.
