Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has won a $419 million Basic Purchasing Agreement contract from U.S. Army for Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband tactical manpack radios and vehicular power-amplifier adapter systems.  The initial delivery order under the contract is valued at $165 million for manpack and vehicular radio systems and support services. Radio systems from this order will be deployed by the Army for missions worldwide to provide next-generation, high-speed tactical satellite and voice-and-data communications.

Dana Mehnert, Group President, Harris RF Communications said, “We are pleased to continue providing the Army with our most advanced tactical manpack radio.  The AN/PRC-117G has comprehensive multimission capabilities to address the full spectrum of the Army’s current tactical communications requirements. This radio is upgradeable to meet future JTRS requirements such as the Mobile User Objective System for satellite communications.”

The AN/PRC-117G manpack radio is field-proven, about half the size of currently multiband systems in the field and boasts an extended frequency range of 30 MHz to 2 GHz. The radio supports streaming video, imagery, biometrics, logistics and other data-intensive applications. The AN/PRC-117G is the first JTRS-approved and NSA Type-1 certified manpack radio system.
