Harris wins radio contracts of more than $30 million

Harris Corp. said Thursday it has been awarded Falcon II radio contracts by the U.S. Army valued at more than $30 million. The devices are manufactured at RF Communications division in Rochester.
The contracts are for AN/PRC-117F manpack and vehicular multi-band, multi-mission radios. The radios use advanced Harris software-defined radio technology to provide embedded communications security, satellite communications and electronic counter-countermeasure capabilities.
The radios will support units deployed in support of operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom and are part of the Army’s modularity redesign.
“The Army is creating a more modular and responsive force, and these multi-mission radios offer the flexibility needed to address the wide range of their radio communication needs,” said Dana Mehnert, vice president and general manager of business development and operations at RF Communications. “These radios also provide a vital, secure, beyond-line-of-sight communication capability for command and control that is not currently met by the Army’s combat net radios.”
