ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 30 (UPI) -- Harris Corporation reports it is to supply three variants of its Falcon III multi-band multi-mission radios to an unidentified country in Africa.

The three variants are the RF-7800H-MP wideband tactical manpack radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; the RF-7850M-HH multi-band networking handheld radio; and the RF-7800V-HH VHF Combat Net Radio.

"Harris' Falcon III radios will support the customer's need for simultaneous, secure voice and high-bandwidth data across a wide range of military missions," said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. "Our strong presence in the region, coupled with our ongoing investment in advancing Falcon solutions, enables us to transition customers from their legacy, voice-dominated tactical radios to networked wideband tactical radios."

The contract carries a value of $11 million, Harris said, but details on the number of units to be supplied was not given.
