MELBOURNE, Fla., April 3 (UPI) -- Harris Corp. reports it has been given a five-year, $49 million contract to provide the U.S. Marine Corps with Unity multi-band, land mobile radios.

Harris's Unity XG-100P and Unity XG-100M full-spectrum, multi-band radios will be used by Marine Corps first-responders, such as fire departments and emergency medical services, at Marine facilities worldwide.

"Harris Unity radios will deliver state-of-the-art, interoperable multiband communications to Marine first responders," said Steve Marschilok, president of Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications.

"The new contract means the Marines can trust the same robust assured communication technology, on-base or off.''

The full spectrum frequency coverage of the Unity product family allows a single radio to cover all of the LMR bands used by the Marine Corps and public safety communities. These new capabilities build on the company's existing relationship as the largest provider of tactical communications to the Marine Corps.

Unity radios feature GPS-enabled situational awareness, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a software-defined radio architecture. They also support APCO P25 trunking, P25 conventional and analog FM modes of operation continuously scanning all bands, voice modes, and encryption modes.
