Harris Wins NATO Voice and Data Radio Order; Brendan O'Connell Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventHarris Corp. will deliver a suite of personal radios to a defense customer for communication at the team, squad and platoon levels.

The company said it received an $11 million dollar order from a NATO country that could potentially be worth $20 million over the next year.

That country ordered the Falcon III Secure Personal Radio, headsets and accessories for voice communications, sharing data and position tracking.

More than 50 nations use that type of radio, said Brendan O’Connell, president of international business for the RF communications business.

The SPR provides coverage in frequency ranges between 350 and 450 megahertz, transmits voice and data at rates of up to 256 kilobytes per second and has a reach of more than 1.2 miles..

Harris also designed the radio to provide users connectivity via USB to other C4 devices (command, control, communications and computers) and also integrate GPS into situational awareness.
