Harris Corp. has received a $23 million order from an undisclosed Middle Eastern country for Falcon III radios, accessories, software, service and support as part of a wideband tactical communications system.
Harris is providing these radios as part of the country’s tactical communications modernization program, the company said in a release.
This tactical communication system will provide a battlefield force with improved command and control situational awareness by transmitting voice, video and data.
"Harris is helping customers transition legacy tactical communications to modern networked wideband systems,'' said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
"These systems provide security forces with critical real-time tactical information in all forms - voice, video, imagery, position location, mapping and more,” he said.
