Harris awarded contract for tactical radios

Harris Corporation confirmed last week a four-year, $180 million IDIQ contract to supply the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with its Falcon III tactical radios, including the AN/PRC-152A wideband handheld radio, AN/PRC-117G wideband manpack radio, and the RF-7800H high-frequency manpack radio.

The radios are being provided under a National Individual Standing Offer and will be available to various organizations within the CAF.

“The radio systems will provide Canadian forces with greater situational awareness and enable end-to-end solutions that address requirements for real-time, mission-critical information on the battlefield,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of the international business unit for Harris RF Communications.

Software-defined and upgradeable, the radios enable applications such as streaming video, simultaneous voice and data feeds, collaborative chat, and connectivity to secure networks.
