Harris Corporation has received an order to develop an integrated tactical communications network as part of the communications modernisation programme of an undisclosed Asia-Pacific country, the company announced on 3 October.

The $260 million order was received in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

The integrated network solution will include tactical radios, network planning, and monitoring and routing software, along with technologies from partnering companies. This will include the Falcon III AN/PRC-158 multi-channel manpack radios and vehicular amplifiers in order to provide voice and data services to tactical forces for line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight applications.

Brendan O'Connell, president, tactical communications, Harris Communication Systems, said: ‘Harris is the incumbent tactical radio provider to the country, and this order is an important step in integrating Harris’ advanced products into their tactical communications network. Our integrated solution will play a pivotal role in the customer’s continued modernisation efforts.’
