Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received a $42 million contract from Chester County, Pa., to deploy and maintain an emergency communications system there.

The company will install remote transmitter and receiver sites, and modify the system that connects the remote sites to the 911 operations center, RF Communications officials said.

In addition, RF Communications will replace the county’s 911 consoles and equipment for the emergency responders, including new mobile radios, portable radios and control stations for emergency responder applications, officials said. The firm also will maintain the new system for eight years after implementation is complete.

“We’re looking forward to working with the county and the first responder community,” said Steve Marschilok, president of RF Communications’ Public Safety and Professional Communications division, in a statement. “We’re confident that our system design is the best fit for the county’s current and future needs.”
