Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received a $78 million order from a nation in central Asia for the next phase of an integrated tactical communications system that provides armed forces with enhanced command and control capabilities.
The nation is expanding its Harris Integrated Tactical Area Communications System (ITACS), which delivers a fully integrated tactical Internet to the mission area. The system provides a range of advanced tactical communication services, including Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), teleconferencing, messaging and email, as well as battlefield management and common operational picture applications.
“The Harris ITACS enables this nation to make a rapid transition to modern, flexible and modular IP-based tactical communications,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications. “This system dramatically improves situational awareness by creating a mobile tactical Internet that delivers voice, data and video across the battlefield.”
ITACS includes a private tactical cellular service provided by Harris Fusion™ 4G LTE (long-term evolution) base stations and ruggedized subscriber terminals. The Fusion system enables users to make mobile calls and access data services securely.
ITACS also includes the RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight Radio, a quick-to-deploy solution for long-range data communications, and the RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio, which provides soldier- and vehicle-based mobile ad hoc wideband networking. Both the RF-7800W and RF-7800M are part of the combat-proven Falcon III® family of radios.
