Harris Corp. will provide tactical communication devices, software and technical support to a Middle East nation under a $23 million contract that aims to modernize the command and control networks of military forces.
The order is also meant to cover the supply of equipment and spare parts of all components needed to modernize the capabilities of a wideband system the country uses for data transmission, Harris said Thursday.
Brendan O’Connell, Harris RF Communications international business president, said the goal of the project is to ensure security forces have modern systems to exchange all forms of real-time information.
“Harris is helping customers transition legacy tactical communications to modern networked wideband systems,'' added O’Connell.
Harris’ RF Communications division will work to integrate the connections of Falcon III® RF-7800 radios for delivery of data to the system that includes video mechanisms for mapping, locating and imaging purposes.
The Falcon radios will include voice and data-capable RF-7800s, the ad-hoc networking RF-7800M and the Internet-capable RF7800W designed for high-speed communication.
