Harris Corporation Receives $7 Million Order To Provide Falcon Tactical Radio Systems To Nation In Central Asia

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received a $7 million order to deliver Falcon ® tactical radios to a nation in Central Asia. The radios will provide interoperable communications to support the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

The Asian country is acquiring radios from across the Falcon portfolio, including the Falcon III ® RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio (SPR™), RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio, Falcon II ® RF-5800M handheld and RF-5800H manpack radios. These radios will address battalion requirements for high-frequency, wideband and multiband communications.

“This order highlights the global strength of the Harris Falcon portfolio and our significant investments in tactical radio systems,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications. “This nation previously standardized on Harris equipment and is continuing its transition to our most advanced Falcon III ® products. This is a clear vote of confidence in the reliability and effectiveness of the family of Harris Falcon Tactical radios.”

The SPR is a lightweight, secure soldier radio platform that offers full-duplex voice, multiple talk-group capabilities and data rates up to 256 Kbps. The SPR allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and even video with unlimited listeners over a range of more than two kilometers.

The RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio has been providing a vehicular-based wideband networking solution to the armed forces of more than 30 countries since 2007. The radio establishes a wideband backbone architecture for delivering secure voice and high-speed networked data services, including the use of common applications, across all levels of the battlefield.

The RF-5800H delivers highly reliable and secure beyond-line-of-site terrestrial communications to the most demanding environments, such as mountains or urban areas. The RF-5800M-HH is an advanced, multiband, multimission handheld radio that provides reliable tactical communications through secure voice and data capabilities.

Harris RF Communications is the leading global supplier of secure radio communications and embedded high-grade encryption solutions for military, government and commercial organizations. The company's Falcon ® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications. Falcon III is the next generation of radios supporting the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide. Harris RF Communications is also a leading supplier of assured communications ® systems and equipment for public safety, utility and transportation markets — with products ranging from the most advanced IP voice and data networks to portable and mobile single- and multiband radios.
