Harris Receives $18M Army Order for Battlefield Vehicle Radio Systems

The U.S. Army has placed a $17.8 million order with Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS)  for additional Falcon II AN/VRC-104(V)(3) radio systems. The radios will provide high-frequency communications in mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles.

The AN/VRC-104 is a fully-integrated communications system that provides beyond-line-of-sight coverage. It includes the Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) high-frequency tactical radio, which delivers beyond line-of-sight type-1 terrestrial communications.

The AN/PRC-150(C) provides continuous coverage in the 1.6 to 60 MHz frequency range, at 150 watts of power in vehicular configurations.

“The majority of the DoD’s MRAP vehicles are equipped with Falcon family radios, ” said Brendan O’Connell, president of Harris RF Communications’ Defense Department business.  “The AN/VRC-104 has contributed to the success of MRAP missions by providing secure long distance communications, particularly in terrain obstructed by mountains or other geographical features.”
