Harris Corp. has won an $11 million contract to provide a country in the Middle East with an integrated communications system for that nation’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaisance missions.
The order is for Falcon III RF-7800M multiband handheld radios, accessories, combat management applications and air-ground-sea surveillance infrastructure, Harris said Thursday.
Falcon works to help warfighters send and receive intelligence data in real time via a secure mobile network, the company says.
Brendan O’Connell, president of international business at Harris RF Communications, said the radio system is designed to support tactical communications in remote areas.
The company also intends for the technology to help combat leaders coordinate responses to air, ground and naval threats.
