The order includes manpack, vehicular and base configurations of the Harris RF-7800H wideband tactical radio, which delivers expanded data capabilities in long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments. The radio transmits voice, images and other larger data files over thousands of kilometers.

The nation also is acquiring handheld and vehicular configurations of the Harris RF-7850M multiband networking radio — the first international radio to simultaneously support wideband communications, mobile ad-hoc networking, and legacy narrowband waveforms.

"These radios address the customer’s requirements for high data rate communication networks to support a variety of complex military missions," said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. "This order demonstrates their continued confidence in our tactical radio solutions."

The Harris Falcon III RF-7800H-MP Wideband HF/VHF Tactical Radio System 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 radio will transform the battlefield by allowing warfighters to send and receive images and other large data files—in addition to voice—over distances that extend into the thousands of kilometers. The Harris Falcon III RF-7800H-MP Wideband HF/VHF Tactical Radio System is 20 percent smaller and lighter than previous HF manpacks and operates on a single battery. Data rates are 10 times greater than current generations of HF radios.

Harris' vehicular Falcon III RF-7850M combines performance and flexibility unlike any other multiband combat net radio available, in a low-profile vehicular or base station platform that is easy to use and install.

The RF-7850M-x provides continuous coverage in the 30 to 512 MHz frequency band with up to 50 watts output power from 30 to108 MHz and up to 20 watts output power from 108 to 512 MHz. The RF-7850M has a familiar user interface and embedded applications that support expedient field-field base dissemination of text messages, images and situational awareness data. Ready for integration into vehicular communications systems, the RF-7850M is fully interoperable with the Harris Digital Intercom System—the RF-7800I and includes a VIC-3 interface for legacy intercom support.
