Poland orders Harris tactical radios

MELBOURNE, Fla., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Manpack tactical radios from the Harris Corp. have been ordered by Poland's Ministry of National Defense in a deal worth $10 million.

The systems to be delivered to Poland are the Falcon III AN/PRC-117G multi-band radio and Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) high-frequency radio. Both will provide Polish military forces with communications interoperability with U.S., coalition and NATO forces.

"The AN/PRC-117G is the first and only widely deployed tactical wideband networking solution that offers secure interoperability with United States and NATO Forces,'' said Brendan O'Connell, president, international business unit, Harris RF Communications.

"Poland's Ministry of National Defense ordered its first AN/PRC-117G manpack radios late last year and is now deploying additional radios to expand this interoperable network to more of its deployed personnel.''

The software-defined Falcon III AN/PRC-117G delivers combat net radio and tactical satellite and ground-to-air capabilities to troops on the move and field commanders. It also provides a seamless transition to wideband networking through the Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform.

The Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) provides long-range Type-1 secure beyond-line-of-sight communications. It covers the 1.6 MHz-60 MHz frequency range and comes with a removable keypad/display unit.
