Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has successfully completed site-acceptance testing of a new radio interface that will provide two-way communications to the coastal radar sites of the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND).

The Harris interface provides the DND's radar sites and its control units with a scalable, upgradeable open-architecture radio interface that can withstand the unique communications challenges posed by the harsh coastal environment. The system enables Canadian air defence operators to run a two-way communications system from remote locations.

"This cost-effective, user-focused solution meets the distinct operational requirements of the DND," said John O'Sullivan, vice president of Mission Critical Networks for Harris Corporation. "Our goal always is to provide a solution that takes into account the unique conditions a system might face, especially when national security is at stake."
