Harris Corporation has been selected to equip US Army Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFABs) with new communication systems, the company announced on 6 December.

Harris will supply its Falcon III AN/PRC-152A Wideband Networking Handheld Radios, AN/PRC-117G Multiband Networking Manpack Radios and AN/PRC-160 High Frequency Manpack Radios. The radios will be equipped with the Soldier Radio Waveform and the Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform, for robust battlefield communications.

The SFAB trains and organises coalition forces and equips them with the equipment needed to complete their missions. The SFAB builds coalition partner capability, preserving US Army combat forces for other pressing missions if required.

Chris Young, president, Harris communication Systems, said: ‘The SFABs are an important, near-term army priority. Our world-class manufacturing facility enables us to quickly support the army with immediate delivery of these battle-tested radios and waveforms, providing the critical communications capability for these brigades on the battlefield.’
