Harris receives Poland Falcon radio order

1st July 2013 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation will supply the Poland Ministry of National Defense with its Falcon III AN/PRC-117G manpack and AN/PRC-152A handheld radios under a new $61 million order announced on 1 July. The radios will enable Poland to better communicate with coalition partners.

The radios will provide Poland’s armed forces with secure wideband combat net radio, tactical satellite and ground-to-air communications.  Both radios are equipped with the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2), which enables military forces to leverage advanced battle management applications such as collaborative chat, streaming video and intelligence collection.

Brendan O’Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications, said: ‘Our Falcon III radios will enable Polish military personnel to communicate seamlessly with US and NATO forces during joint warfighting missions. Our radios unite the forces by making it easier to exchange voice, data and situational awareness, even while on the move.’

Harris has deployed more than 40,000 AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios worldwide. They are in use by all branches of the US Department of Defense and more than 15 allied nations.
