Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester said Thursday it has received a $100 million follow-on order to provide multiband handheld and high-frequency manpack tactical radios to the Australian Department of Defence.

The company will deliver the radios in the latest phase of the Joint Project 2072 modernization program, officials said. The Australian military forces are fielding and deploying additional handheld radios and vehicular adapters, as well as high-frequency manpack radios.

"This order extends the longstanding relationship between Harris and the Commonwealth of Australia and demonstrates their continued trust in our tactical communications solutions,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of International Business at RF Communications, in a statement.

“We deeply value our partnership with the Australian Department of Defence as it embarks on its long-term goal of creating a next-generation wideband tactical communications network.”
