The Falcon III platform enables checkpoint and patrol biometrics, convoy tracking, route planning and other missions.
“Harris Falcon III is delivering the tactical network that our military needs to stay connected at the edge, ” said Brendan O’Connell, president of Harris RF Communications’ Defense Department business. “The Harris Falcon III family of radios addresses the DoD’s full gamut of mission requirements for line-of-sight, beyond-line-of-sight and wideband networking communications.”
“These systems build on the acclaimed success of our widely deployed Falcon II line, which is in use around the world, by the United States, NATO and other allied nations. The Falcon line is software-defined and software-upgradeable to support emerging applications, ” he added.
