Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received an $11 million order from a Middle Eastern nation to provide a comprehensive coastal intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance communications network.
Harris will provide
Falcon III® RF-7800M
Multiband Networking Radios, accessories and its battle management application in Coast Guard vehicles and strategic installations on land, at sea and in the air. The integrated solution will allow users to send and receive situational awareness and intelligence information across a secure mobile network, connecting squads and their commanders for real-time decision-making. If a threat is detected, local commanders will be able to coordinate air, ground and naval asset responses.
"This unique solution demonstrates Harris’ ability to deliver integrated tactical area communication systems that connect users wherever they are,” said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications. “Users will be able to communicate over longer distances and reach command centers from remote areas that lack telecommunications infrastructure.”
The RF-7800M is part of the Falcon III
family of wideband radios. Harris has shipped more than 45,000 of the radios to the U.S. Department of Defense as well as allied forces in more than 15 nations.
