MELBOURNE, Fla., Oct. 10 (UPI) -- An unidentified NATO country has ordered Falcon III multi-mission handheld tactical radios from Florida's Harris Corp.

Harris said the order is worth $5.1 million but didn't disclose the number of units to be delivered or the projected delivery schedule.

"The Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) provides warfighters with high-performance voice and data capabilities necessary for success on a range of missions," said Brendan O'Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications.

"The Falcon III family of radios offers trusted, combat-proven communications solutions to meet current and emerging mission requirements by armed forces around the world.''

The AN/PRC-152(C) is the most widely deployed JTRS Software Communications, Architecture-certified, and NSA Type-1 certified handheld radio. Harris said more than 160,000 units deployed worldwide.

The radio provides line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight voice and data communications over the 30-512 MHz frequency range. It also supports SINCGARS, Havequick II, VHF/UHF AM and FM, APCO P25, DAMA and the new Integrated Waveform for satellite communications.
