U.S. Special Operations Command has ordered $18 million in tactical radios from Harris Corp.

SOCOM will be getting more Falcon III AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios, according to a Harris news release. The manpack AN/PRC-117G operates in the 30 MHz to 2 GHz frequency band, while the handheld AN/PRC-152A is capable of wideband IP-based networking waveforms from 225 to 450 MHz, according to Harris. In addition to wideband data networking, these radios can operate through legacy narrowband waveforms.

"Harris Falcon III wideband radio systems are delivering the tactical Internet to the battlefield," said George Helm, president of the Department of Defense unit at Harris RF Communications. "This new network is opening up a world of new combat applications, such as collaborative chat, biometric enrollments, video conferencing and video ISR."
