MELBOURNE, Fla., July 2 (UPI) -- Poland's Ministry of National Defense has ordered manpack and hand-held radios from the Harris Corporation to improve communications with allied troops.

The order for Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A tactical radios is worth $61 million. A breakdown on the number of units of each model to be delivered and their delivery schedule were not detailed.

"Our Falcon III radios will enable Polish military personnel to communicate seamlessly with U.S. and NATO forces during joint warfighting missions,"' said Brendan O'Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications. "Our radios unite the forces by making it easier to exchange voice, data and situational awareness, even while on the move."

Both radio types are equipped with the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform, which enables military forces to leverage advanced battle management applications such as collaborative chat, streaming video and intelligence collection for ground-to-ground, satellite and ground-to-air communications.

Harris' AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios are in use by more than 15 allied nations.
