MELBOURNE, Fla., Jan. 15 (UPI) -- An unidentified country has ordered an end-to-end tactical information system for its military commanders from the Harris Corp. of Florida.

Harris said that under the orders, worth a combined total of $42 million, it will supply its Integrated Tactical Area Communications System, which provides fully integrated IP-based voice, data, and video services across the battlefield.

"This system connects users to a high-capacity Tactical Internet, which supports a wide range of battlefield services, including telephony, video teleconferencing, messaging/email, common operational picture and command and control," the company said. "ITACS is fully integrated with the latest Harris mobile ad-hoc networking radios and advanced combat net radios to connect to lower echelons."

ITACS allows for an easy migration from legacy, circuit-switched area communication systems to IP systems, Harris said, and since the system is modular and software designed it can be upgraded as new technology develops.

ITACS includes the new Falcon III RF-7800W, high Capacity line-of-sight radio, which provides secure point-to-point and point-to-multipoint data communication links over long distances.
