Harris receives $26M order for Falcon III radios

Radios will help Marine Corps expand wideband tactical networking capabilities

Harris Corp. has received a $26 million order to distribute its Falcon III AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack tactical radios to the U.S. Marine Corps.

These radios form mobile ad-hoc communication networks to exchange voice, video and tactical data reports on the battlefield, Harris said.

Through this order, the Marine Corps will expand its wideband tactical networking capabilities and deliver the tactical Internet down to the individual warfighter.
