RF Communications net orders worth $113 million

Rochester Business Journal
December 27, 2013

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester announced Friday several multimillion dollar orders, together amounting to $113 million.

The company on Thursday had announced a $100 million order, bringing its total this week to more than $200 million.
 
RF Communications was awarded a $49 million order to provide an undisclosed nation in the Middle East with integrated tactical communications and a $36 million order from an undisclosed NATO country for its high-frequency tactical radios. In addition, the company received $28 million in orders to supply tactical radios to an undisclosed nation in Latin America.

Under the first order, the company is supplying high-frequency, very high-frequency and multiband radios integrated with vehicular intercom systems to support command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance network for military and security forces, company officials said.

For the NATO country, RF Communications is supplying high-frequency radios for the nation’s special forces in manpack and vehicular configurations.

The radios for the Latin America orders will be used to provide a tactical communications system to counter drug smuggling and other international cross-border criminal activities.

The news comes on the heels of a $100 million follow-on order to provide multiband handheld and high-frequency manpack tactical radios to the Australian Department of Defence.

“Harris (high-frequency) radios enable military personnel to stay connected from the most unforgiving geographies for tactical communications," said Brendan O’Connell, president of International Business at RF Communications, in a statement.

RF Communications ranked third on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of manufacturers with 2,300 local workers.
