Harris Corporation Receives $11 Million Order From Nation In Latin America For Falcon Tactical Radios

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received an $11 million order from a nation in Latin America for Falcon III® Very High Frequency (VHF) Combat Net Radios. The order was received by Harris in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The radios will enable the nation’s Army soldiers to communicate via voice, video and data as they conduct their missions.

Combat net radios are a primary tool for military communications around the world. The RF-7800V delivers range, data speeds and throughput unmatched by any VHF combat net radio on the market. The RF-7800V handheld supports simultaneous networked voice and data communications to multiple users with data rates up to 192 Kbps, allowing for time-critical GPS reports. The radio offers new Harris technology that makes it easier to talk in high-noise or jammed communication environments.

"This order will accelerate tactical radio modernization for this nation’s Army by providing soldiers with highly portable voice and high-speed VHF data capabilities,’’ said Brendan O’Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications. “The RF-7800V delivers continuous coverage in the 30 to 108 MHz frequency band, offering unique performance and flexibility for a combat net radio.’’
