MELBOURNE, Fla., Sept. 18 (UPI) -- Harris Corp.'s Falcon II tactical radios have been ordered by an unidentified Middle Eastern government as part of a communications modernization program.

The value of the order is $25 million, the company said.

"Harris offers the world's most advanced digital HF radio family for delivering highly reliable and secure communications for missions that require beyond-line-of-sight capabilities,'' said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.

"HF radio systems are crucial for delivering up-to-the-minute situational awareness and command and control."

The product to be supplied is the Falcon II RF-5800H. The order includes base stations, vehicular systems and manpack radios for beyond line-of-sight terrestrial voice and data communications.

Harris said the Falcon II RF-5800H features Third Generation-Automatic Link Establishment for initiating contact between two HF radios; integrated data link protocols for data sharing and text messaging and embedded GPS receivers.
