Harris Corporation has received a $10.8 million order from the U.S. Air Force for additional Falcon III® multiband manpack tactical radios to provide enhanced capabilities for tactical communications. The order was received in the first quarter of Harris’ 2013 fiscal year.
“The Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G will provide Joint Terminal Attack Controllers and other Air Force personnel with enhanced real-time voice and data communications,” said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “This will lead to greater situational awareness, which is critical for forward-deployed combat controllers. Our radio is combat proven and widely fielded in support of the DOD’s emerging tactical network.”
