Harris Books $9 Million Deal to Help Army Detect Bio Warfare Agents

Harris (NYSE: HRS) picked up a $9 million order from the Army to provide high-frequency radios for the Army’s Joint Biological Point Detection System.

Harris will provide Falcon II 400-watt AN/PRC-150(C) HF systems to JBPDS. The system works to detect and identify biological warfare agents.

The firm’s system will transmit alerts to headquarters over HF radio links when the system detects the presence of biological agents.

“Harris is the market leader in tactical, high-frequency radio communications, ” said Brendan O’Connell, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “We have supported the integration of our radio systems into many types of customer programs. In this instance, the Army is taking advantage of the secure data transmission capabilities of the AN/PRC-150 to give U.S. forces the maximum amount of time to respond to potentially significant threats.”
