Harris Corporation (HRS) has received an $88 million order to provide a country in the Middle East with Falcon III wideband tactical radios and accessories as part of an overall modernization effort. 

The system leverages the latest software-defined radios from the Harris Falcon III RF-7800 family. This includes the RF-7800H, the first wideband HF tactical radio, delivering expanded data capabilities for long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; the RF-7850M, for wideband mobile ad-hoc networking; and the RF-7800S, a lightweight soldier personal radio for full-duplex voice and data communications over 2 kilometers. The order also includes vehicular and base station systems, accessories, spares, and training services. 

“Harris’ strong presence in the region, combined with our continued investment in a leading-edge Falcon portfolio of tactical communications products and systems, enables us to transition our customers from legacy, voice-dominated communications to modern networked wideband system solutions,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications. “These advanced communications systems will support the customer’s current and future operational requirements for simultaneous secure voice and high-bandwidth data across a wide range of missions.”
