MELBOURNE, Fla., May 16 (UPI) -- U.S. Special Operations Command is receiving advanced tactical radio units from Harris Corp. under its Capital Equipment Replacement Program.

The order to Harris is worth $39 million. Harris, however, did not provide a delivery schedule for the Falcon III AN/PRC-152A multiband manpack radios.

"The AN/PRC-152A provides Department of Defense personnel with unprecedented capabilities in a handheld radio, including wideband tactical communications and networking,'' said George Helm, president of Harris Corp.'s Department of Defense business unit. "We're delivering a powerful platform that operators can use for accessing and transmitting Type-1 secure voice, video and data and secure network connectivity in real time.

"The AN/PRC-152A leverages our extensive investment in Falcon III radio technology, which is transforming tactical communications around the world."

The AN/PRC-152A provides wideband and narrowband waveforms and also hosts SINCGARS, VHF/UHF Line-of-Sight, HaveQuick, IW for tactical satellite communications and other radio waveforms.

The order is the first received by Harris under a new $400 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
