Harris Corporation has received a $11 million order from a nation in the Middle East to supply the Harris RF-7800 series of Falcon III® multiband, multimission radios as part of a continued modernization effort. The order was booked and shipped during the fourth quarter of Harris' fiscal 2015.

The order includes the RF-7800H-MP wideband tactical manpack radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; and the RF-7850M-HH multiband networking handheld radio, the first international radio to offer wideband communications and mobile, ad-hoc networking along with legacy narrowband waveforms.

"These radios support the customer's operational requirements for simultaneous, secure voice and high-bandwidth data across a wide range of military missions," said Brendan O'Connell, president, Tactical Communications, Harris Communication Systems. "Our continued investment in the Falcon portfolio, supported by our strong presence in the region, enables us to transition customers from legacy voice-dominated tactical radios to networked wideband tactical radios."

The RF-7850M-HH Multiband Combat Net Radio (CNR) is a multi-mission radio that combines next generation functionality and advanced capabilities to meet the requirements of network-centric warfare. Providing continuous coverage in the 30 to 512 MHz frequency range with up to 10 watts of output power, the RF-7850M-HH enables long range inter-squad and ground-to-air communications.

The Falcon III® RF-7800H wideband manpack builds on a half-century of innovation from Harris Corporation in high-frequency tactical communications. It is the world’s first wideband HF tactical radio, delivering expanded data capabilities to long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments. The new Falcon III HF radio is 20 percent smaller and lighter than previous HF manpacks and operates on a single battery.
