RF Communication awarded Marine contract

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has been awarded $118 million in orders from the U.S. Marine Corps for its Falcon II multiband, manpack radios.
The orders are part of a new $350 million contract that will help the assist the military with its equipment modernization program, the company said.
Under terms of the contract, the Marine Corps almost will double its quantities of the AN/PRC-117, a widely deployed manpack radio that delivers multiband/multimission secure voice and data communications in a single package. RF Communications said the radios provide extended frequency range, significant reductions in weight and size, waveform upgradeability and interoperability.
“We’re pleased to help the Marines address their expanding mission requirements,” said George Helm, RF vice president and general manager, U.S. Government Products, in a statement. “Harris is committed to providing our customers with a family of radios that not only meets the operational challenges faced by troops in the field today but also provides the ability to transition to the networked force of tomorrow.”
As part of the contract, Harris will provide three technical service personnel who will work with Marine maintenance companies.
