Harris Corp. has received an $18 million order from a nation in Central Asia for Falcon III® wideband tactical radios. The radios will provide advanced voice and data capabilities for the country’s armed forces on the frontline. The order was received during the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Highlights include:

  • Delivering high-frequency and multiband tactical radios to nation's armed forces
  • Establishes crucial communication links for operating in beyond line-of-sight and line-of-sight environments
  • Further expands international deployment of Falcon III portfolio of tactical radios

The nation is acquiring the RF-7800H high-frequency manpack and the RF-7850M multiband handheld radios. The RF-7800H is the first HF manpack radio with high-speed wideband data capabilities, allowing users to efficiently transmit large data files over beyond line-of-sight links. The RF-7850M multiband radio supports the latest wideband and narrowband networking waveforms and provides forward-deployed teams with capabilities to communicate with greater speed and detail

“Harris radios deliver highly reliable and secure communications for critical missions on the battlefield," said Brendan O’Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications. “Both the RF-7800H and the RF-7850M radio systems are crucial for delivering secure, up-to-the-minute situational awareness and effective command and control."
