Harris receives manpack radio contract

21st June 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation will supply the US Special Operations Command with next-generation multi-channel manpack radios under a six-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract announced on 19 June.

In addition to the manpack radios, the contract includes the new RF-410 next-generation manpack power amplifier, vehicular systems, accessories and push-to-talk/headset audio sub-systems.

The contract is part of the comprehensive US Special Operations Forces (SOF) Tactical Communications programme.

The radio will enable advanced communications for SOF on the battlefield. It offers similar fully integrated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), situational awareness and communications capabilities to the handheld, while meeting or exceeding the enhanced manpack requirements for increased performance, power, throughput and range.

The radios can communicate via satellite communications, VHF/UHF/L-band and multiple wideband networking waveforms, as well as receive and transmit ISR full-motion video and signals-based situational awareness.
