ROCHESTER, N.Y., 27 Feb. 2010. Harris Corp. (NYSE:HRS) received an order valued at $78 million to provide additional Falcon II AN/VRC-104 high-frequency tactical radio systems for use in U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATVs). This order was placed by the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command on behalf of the DOD's Joint MRAP program.
The AN/VRC-104 is a vehicular transceiver/amplifier that includes the AN/PRC-150(C), a Type-1 high-frequency manpack radio. Harris HF radios are in widespread use by all branches of the DOD and allies around the world, Harris officials say.
The Falcon family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld, and vehicular applications. Falcon III is the next-generation family of radios supporting the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) requirements, as well as network-centric operations worldwide.
