ROCHESTER, N.Y., 9 July 2010. Harris Corp., an international communications and information technology company, has received orders totaling $99 million to supply C4I systems, including Falcon tactical radios and sensors, to a military customer in Asia.

Harris will provide the customer with the next phase of a comprehensive, multi-level system for C4I -- command and control, communications, computers and intelligence. This system will include Falcon III and Falcon II tactical radios, including the RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio, RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio, RF-7800V VHF Combat Net Radio, RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight Radio, and RF-5800H High Frequency Radio.

"The orders demonstrate Harris' unique ability to provide total system solutions based on our extensive portfolio of world-class communications products," said Andy Start, president, international business unit, Harris RF Communications. "Our systems provide built-in security and interoperability, and integrate with our broad offering of mission applications that are enabled by the improved bandwidth and reliability of our networking products. With this impressive technology set, we're able to deliver on both today's requirements and tomorrow's emerging needs."

The Harris Falcon III RF-7800S is a lightweight, wearable personal radio that offers full-duplex voice capability, allowing several soldiers to talk simultaneously with unlimited listeners over a range of more than 2 kilometers.

The Falcon III RF-7800V provides high-speed data connectivity up to 192 Kbps, making it the fastest VHF combat net radio available. The RF-7800V provides continuous coverage in the 30 to 108 MHZ frequency
band at up to 50 watts of power.

The Falcon III RF-7800M is a wideband tactical radio that provides warfighters with unprecedented situational awareness of the battlefield through wireless, high-bandwidth networked communications over a frequency range of 30 MHz to 2 GHz. Wideband capabilities are provided via the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2).

The Falcon III RF-7800W is a wireless IP networking radio used to establish secure broadband connectivity for mission critical applications over long distances in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations, enabling militaries to finally deploy Ethernet intensive low-latency applications needed to overcome
hostile forces.

The Falcon II RF-5800H is the most advanced HF radio in the world. The radio features Automatic Link Establishment (3G-ALE) data rates up to 9600 bps with advanced error-free protocols, an embedded GPS receiver, MELP (Mixed-Excitation Linear Predictive) digital voice, Citadel encryption, digital ECCM (Electromagnetic Counter-Counter Measure) techniques, and a built-in Internet Protocol (IP) interface.
