Harris Corp. has won an $8 million contract to implement a new communications system intended to help public safety agencies in Genesee County, N.Y. coordinate with each other.
The Project 25-based digital radio system is intended to be interoperable and cover 95 percent of the county including dead spots, Harris said Wednesday.
Genesee County first responders and public works teams use Harris’ XG-25 portable and mobile radios for the system, designed with Harris’ VIDA network.
It was designed to feature Harris’ VIDA® network and meet Project 25 technology standards.
The system is intended for the law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services; as well as county highway and public works departments.
