Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has received another order from the Defense Department for its Falcon III multichannel manpack radios to support the agency’s Handheld, Manpack and Small Form Factor tactical radio program.

George Helm, president of Harris RF Communications‘ DoD business,  said Friday the RF-340M is expected to help bolster mission command and situational awareness capabilities as part of military tactical communications.

He noted that this is the second Pentagon order for the said radio equipment.

The Falcon III RF-340M is designed to transmit voice and data over two integrated radio channels that can directly host government wideband and narrowband waveforms, with features for service expansion and multichannel cross-banding, Harris said.
