Harris Corporation Awarded $38 Million In Orders From U.S. Air Force For JTRS-Certified Wideband Tactical Radios

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received $38 million in orders for tactical radios that will expand deployment of wideband tactical communications across the U.S. Air Force. The orders were received during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

Harris will supply the Air Force with additional Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack and AN/PRC-152A multiband handheld tactical radio systems. The radios will accelerate the rollout of Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) wideband networking capabilities to para-rescue, combat communications and other Air Force personnel.

“Harris’ Falcon III radios provide secure voice communications and enable operators to send and receive images, video, e-mails, text messages and even participate in teleconferences,’’ said George Helm, president, U.S. Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “The Air Force is deploying our JTRS-certified radios to provide two-channel communication capabilities. JTRS-certified wideband networking allows users to connect seamlessly to the Global Information Grid, a secure, classified version of the Internet.’’

Falcon III is the world’s most widely fielded family of next-generation tactical radios, providing enhanced situational awareness of the battlefield through integrated line-of-sight, beyond-line-of-sight and wideband communications capabilities. Harris has shipped more than 40,000 AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios to all branches of the U.S. military as well as more than 15 allied nations. Falcon III radios have been exhaustively tested in field exercises, laboratory environments and on the battlefield.

Lightweight and portable, both radios are equipped with the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform, which enable military forces to interoperate seamlessly with battle management software applications for enhanced situational awareness. The radios are certified to operate JTRS Soldier Radio Waveform and support other key U.S. Air Force capabilities, such as the HAVEQUICK and APCO Project-25 waveforms.

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.
