Harris nets $390M contract to deliver tactical radios

Harris Corp. has won a $390 million contract to provide the U.S. Special Operations Forces with specialized handheld tactical radios.

Under the contract, Harris will provide its new integrated two-channel, handheld radio that combines communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

The radios can operate in harsh environments, can be upgraded easily, and has built-in backward compatibility to communicate over legacy networks, Harris said in a release.

The U.S. Special Operations Forces will be able to leverage the radios to communicate over multiple channels simultaneously, the company said.
