Harris gets $15M radio deal with Latin American nation

Harris Corp. has won a $15 million contract for public safety and tactical radios and accessories from an undisclosed Latin American nation.

The company declined to name the country when contacted by Washington Technology.

The company said that their equipment, which include the Falcon very-high frequency and high-frequency tactical radios, as well as portable land mobile radios and accessories, will be integrated into the nation’s new wireless digital voice and data network for national security applications.

The radios will operate on the nation’s Harris OpenSky mission-critical radio system.

"Harris is uniquely positioned to address converging defense and internal security missions," said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communication, in a statement. "These new Harris tactical and land mobile radios will enhance the capabilities of this nation's forces to coordinate their efforts to provide safety and security to its citizens."

Applications include providing federal officials and armed forces with interoperable voice and data communications to help protect strategic installations, Harris said.
