Communications equipment maker Harris ( HRS) forecast better than expected earnings for fiscal 2007, led by higher revenue from its government-related businesses and improving demand for commercial communications products.

The company expects to earn $2.45 a share to $2.55 a share. Analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call forecast fiscal 2007 earnings of $2.40 a share.

The company expects fiscal 2007 revenue of $3.8 billion to $3.9 billion. Analysts were expecting revenue of $3.78 billion.

"In fiscal year 2007, we expect to achieve organic revenue growth above 10 percent," the company said. "Demand and funding for secure tactical radios from our RF Communications Division remains very strong as U.S. and international markets modernize communications equipment to support interoperability and more modular, self-sustaining defense forces."

Harris also said it received a $140 million order from the U.S. Marine Corps to supply high-frequency radios.

The company will supply Marine corps with its AN/PRC-150, AN/VRC-104(V)3 and AN/PRC-117F systems. The Harris AN/PRC-150 is an advanced, high-frequency radio and the AN/PRC-117F is an advanced multiband radio.

The order is given as part of two previously announced contracts awarded to Harris.

The radio systems will be used to upgrade and replace the Marine Corps' legacy tactical radio systems and also for other USMC programs, the company said.

"We are privileged to continue serving the United States Marine Corps and are honored that they have chosen to replace their current radios with our Falcon II radio systems," Harris said.
