Harris Corporation Bags a $7 Million Order for their Falcon Tactical Radios

Harris Corporation has received a whopping $7.2 million order from a Middle Eastern Nation for their Falcon III® RF-7800S Secure Personal Radios and Falcon II® high-frequency manpack radios. The nation is acquiring the radios to provide security forces with high-performance line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications. The Falcon III RF-7800S is a lightweight body-worn tactical radio that provides full-duplex voice and data communications over two kilometers. Optimized for maximum performance across highly variable environments, the RF-7800S secure personal role radio provides continuous coverage in the 350 to 450 MHz frequency range. The radio offers dual push-to-talk capabilities and allows simultaneous communication for voice, data and video. It also provides beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications, a continuous coverage in the 1.6 to 60 MHz frequency band, enabling the warfighter to stay connected even in the harshest conditions, when line-of-sight communications are not an option. It offers advanced features such as Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment, integrated data link protocols and embedded GPS receivers. “Harris continues to expand its leadership position in the global tactical communications market with a broad portfolio of proven, mission critical solutions,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications. “The RF-7800S provides secure and reliable squad-level communications, while the RF-5800H enables warfighters to communicate in even the most challenging environment.”
