The US Marine Corps is acquiring further L3Harris Falcon IV tactical radios under two new contracts.

L3Harris Technologies has announced follow-on orders worth $160 million from the USMC for AN/PRC-163 multi-channel handheld and vehicular radios.

The two new orders fall under a ten-year, competitively awarded $750 million indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract for Falcon IV manpack and handheld systems, and bring total programme orders to $336 million.

'The resilient communications our battle-proven radios and secure waveforms offer allow marines to talk to each other with confidence and exchange information at faster rates,' said Chris Aebli, president, Tactical Communications, L3Harris.
