MELBOURNE, Fla., May 31 (UPI) -- U.S. communications company Harris Corp. is supplying its Falcon III radios to an unidentified Middle Eastern country under a $23 million order.
The package deal -- part of the country' modernization of tactical communications capability -- includes accessories, software, service and support.
"Harris is helping customers transition legacy tactical communications to modern networked wideband systems,'' said Brendan O'Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
"These systems provide security forces with critical, real-time tactical information in all forms -- voice, video, imagery, position location, mapping and more.''
Harris said its system integrates a full suite of software-defined radios from the Falcon III RF-7800 family, including the RF-7800S, a soldier personal radio for full-duplex voice and data communication; the RF-7800M for wideband mobile ad-hoc networking; and the RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight Internet Protocol radio.
