Harris Corp. has received a $28 million order to supply tactical radios to an unspecified Latin American nation. The Falcon III RF-7800S Secure Personal radios, RF-7800V Combat Net radios and Falcon II RF-5800H high frequency radios will be used to provide a mission-critical tactical communications system to counter drug smuggling and other international cross-border criminal activities.
The Harris announcement notes the multinational aspect of the sale: The radios will be used for improved communications interoperability between U.S. and partner forces.
"Harris radios provide users with enhanced command and control and situational awareness for real-time decision-making and set the standard for reliability and interoperability," said Brendan O'Connell, president for international business at Harris RF Communications. "These capabilities are crucial for a well-coordinated response to illicit drug trafficking and other challenges addressed by the nation's security forces."
