MELBOURNE, Fla., Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A $7 million order from the U.S. Special Operations Command has been given to the Harris Corp. for additional multi-band manpack radios and accessories.

The radios, Falcon III AN/PRC-117Gs, provides Type-1 secure voice, video and wideband data capabilities and supports network-enabled missions such as intelligence reporting and analysis and biometric enrollment.

"The AN/PRC-117G's software-defined and upgradeable platform enables Special Operations Forces to use high-speed data, voice and real-time video to address its command and control and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance requirements," said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications.

"Widely deployed across all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense, the AN/PRC-117G meets emerging mission requirements by providing unprecedented situational awareness for dismounted and vehicular warfighters."

The Falcon III is used by the militaries of Canada, France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Australia and Poland as well as by U.S. forces.
