Harris wins tactical radio contracts
Harris Corporation has received contracts worth a combined $90 million from an undisclosed European customer to provide tactical radios for the country's communications readiness programme, the company announced on 9 May.
The contracts will see Harris supply the Falcon II AN/PRC-150C, which provides beyond line-of-sight communications in a satellite-denied environment, and the Falcon III AN/PRC-152A, which provides wideband voice and data capability for enhanced situational awareness. The combination of the two radio systems will enhance the user's readiness and allow for full interoperability with US, NATO and coalition forces.
Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems, said: 'Harris is committed to supporting this nation's readiness effort with solutions that deliver expanded and reliable communications for the modern battlefield.'
