Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received an $8.7 million order for vehicular intercom systems from a nation in the Middle East.

Armed forces in that country, which was not identified, will install the equipment in main battle tanks and other armored vehicles, company officials said. The system will allow crew members to talk with each other within vehicles, while also creating a network backbone that integrates vehicular and handheld tactical radio systems.

Brendan O’Connell, president of international business at RF Communications, said the system is interoperable with the company’s tactical radios as well as other military, government and commercial communication devices.

RF Communications employs some 2,300 local workers.
