NATO country to receive Falcon III tactical radios
Harris announced on 9 October that it has received a $5.1 million contract to supply Falcon III multiband, multi-mission handheld radios to an unnamed NATO nation. The radios will be used to provide line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications to the country’s armed forces personnel.
The AN/PRC-152 is a JTRS Software Communications Architecture-certified and NSA Type-1 certified handheld radio, with more than 160,000 units deployed worldwide. The radio provides voice and data capabilities over the 30 MHz to 512 MHz frequency range and supports SINCGARS, Havequick II, VHF/UHF AM and FM, APCO P25 and both DAMA and the new Integrated Waveform for satellite communications.
Brendan O’Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications, said: ‘The Falcon III AN/PRC-152 provides warfighters with high-performance voice and data capabilities necessary for success on a range of missions. The Falcon III family of radios offers trusted, combat-proven communications solutions to meet current and emerging mission requirements by armed forces around the world.’
