"Harris is committed to supporting this nation's readiness effort with solutions that deliver expanded and reliable communications for the modern battlefield," said Chris Young, president of Harris Communication Systems.

Included in the contracts are Falcon II AN/PRC-150C radios that provide beyond line-of-sight communications and communications in a satellite-denied environment. Also included are Falcon III AN/PRC-152A systems for wideband voice and data communications.

"The combination of the two radio systems will increase readiness and allow for full interoperability with U.S., NATO and coalition forces," Harris said.

Information on the exact number of radio systems ordered and their delivery schedule were not disclosed.
