Harris Corporation Receives $18 Million in Orders for Falcon III® Wideband Tactical Radios from U.S. Special Operations Command

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received orders totaling $18 million for Falcon III® manpack and handheld tactical radios from the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The orders were received during the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

USSOCOM is acquiring more Falcon III AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios as it expands deployment of a SOCOM-accredited wideband tactical communications network. The network enables operators to send and receive tactical voice, video and data, resulting in enhanced situational awareness and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). In addition to advanced wideband data networking, the AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A provide users with interoperability through legacy narrowband waveforms.

“Harris Falcon III wideband radio systems are delivering the tactical Internet to the battlefield,’’ said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business unit, Harris RF Communications. “This new network is opening up a world of new combat applications, such as collaborative chat, biometric enrollments, video conferencing and video ISR. These are next-generation capabilities, delivered today, using a proven commercial business model that thrives on competition and innovation.’’

Harris produces the world’s most widely fielded wideband networking technology, with more than 45,000 manpack and handheld radio systems deployed to U.S. forces as well as Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Australia, Poland and other allies. These radios offer NSA Type-1 certified High Assurance Internet Protocol Equipment encryption, the highest level of information assurance available to tactical units.

The company’s Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications.
