Har­ris Cor­po­ra­tion bags or­ders for Fal­con III ra­dios

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Har­ris Cor­po­ra­tion (HRS), an in­ter­na­tional com­mu­ni­ca­tions and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy com­pany, has re­ceived $82 mil­lion in or­ders from an in­ter­na­tional cus­tomer for ra­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems that en­able en­hanced com­mand and con­trol and real-time sit­u­a­tional aware­ness.

The na­tion’s armed forces are ac­quir­ing Fal­con III RF-7800H wide­band high-fre­quency (HF) and RF-7800V very-high-fre­quency (VHF) ra­dios in hand­held, man-por­ta­ble, ve­hic­u­lar and tac­ti­cal base sta­tion con­fig­u­ra­tions. These sys­tems pro­vide wide­band tac­ti­cal net­work­ing to the edge of the bat­tle­field, as well as in­ter­op­er­a­ble line-of-sight and be­yond-line-of-sight voice and data com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The sys­tems al­low forces to com­mu­ni­cate se­curely and more im­me­di­ately with their com­mand struc­ture, en­abling more in­formed de­ci­sions.

“Our se­cure tac­ti­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion prod­ucts and sys­tem solu- tions en­able armed forces to de­ploy quickly and man­age mis­sions in real time,” said Brendan O’Con­nell, Pres­i­dent, In­ter­na­tional busi­ness, Har­ris RF Com­mu­ni­ca­tions. “The Har­ris so­lu­tion al­lows head­quar­ters staff to mon­i­tor and co­or­di­nate for­ward op­er­at­ing units, dis­mounted troops, ve­hi­cles and air­borne as­sets. These sys­tems have ap­pli­ca­tions in a wide va­ri­ety of sce­nar­ios, in­clud­ing corps-sized ma­noeu­vres, bor­der con­trol and dis­as­ter re­lief.”

The Fal­con III RF-7800H is trans­form­ing HF tac­ti­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The ra­dio is the first to en­able users to send im­ages and other bat­tle man­age­ment data over high-fre­quency be­yond-line-of-sight en­vi­ron­ments faster than they could through satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The RF-7800H is 20 per cent smaller and up to 10 times faster than legacy HF ra­dios and is fully com­pat­i­ble with widely de­ployed Har­ris Fal­con II HF ra­dios and ac­ces­sories.

The RF-7800V fam­ily de­liv­ers per­for­mance and flex­i­bil­ity un­matched by any other VHF com­bat net ra­dio plat­form. Highly por­ta­ble and easy-to-use, the RF-7800V al­lows forces to op­er­ate ef­fort­lessly across the net­work-cen­tric bat­tle­field.
