Harris unit receives $29 million in orders

Harris Corp.’s Rochester-based Communications Systems’ business has received two orders totaling $29 million to provide its tactical radios to an undisclosed customer in Europe.

The orders are part of an ongoing standardization program designed to ensure interoperability during coalition operations, the company reported.

"These radios will ensure that our customer has secure interoperability with U.S. and NATO forces,” said Christopher Young, Harris Communication Systems’ president in a statement. “With wideband networking capabilities, warfighters will gain improved situational awareness and access to a common operating picture.”

Shares of Harris (NYSE:HRS) were trading midday around $79.41, down less than 1 percent from Thursday’s close of $80.05.
