Harris wins Brazilian MOD award
Harris Corporation has announced that it has received orders from the Federative Republic of Brazil for Falcon III VHF Combat Net Radios and Falcon III Secure Personal Radios (SPR) to support a wide range of mission requirements. The orders total $10.7 million.
According to the company, Brazil is acquiring the Harris RF-7800V vehicular radio system and RF-7800S SPR to provide its armed forces with advanced voice and high-speed data communication capabilities. The RF-7800V system, for use in tanks, transport and other vehicles, delivers range, data speeds and throughput that are unmatched by any other combat net radio on the market. The RF-7800S is a wideband networking radio designed for the emerging demands for voice, data and situational awareness at the soldier level. Harris received the orders from Brazil’s Center for Communications and Electronic Warfare (CCOMGEX.)
The RF-7800V family covers the 30 MHz to 108 MHz frequency range and supports data rates up to 192 Kbps, making it the fastest combat net radio available today. The RF-7800V also provides time-critical BMS reports, while delivering simultaneous networked voice and data communications to multiple users. Additionally, the RF-7800V offers Free-Channel Search and dual push-to-talk capabilities for enhanced agility in high-noise or jammed environments.
The RF-7800S is a lightweight soldier system radio that offers full-duplex voice, dual push-to-talk capabilities and data rates up to 256 Kbps. The radio allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and video with listeners over a range of more than two km. Optimised for maximum performance across highly variable environments, the RF-7800S secure personal role radio provides continuous coverage in the 350 to 450 MHz frequency range. The RF-7800S secure personal radio has been adopted as the standardized personal radio platform for multiple soldier modernisation programmes around the world.
