Harris Receives Delivery Order for Multiband Manpack Radios

Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has received a $15 million order for additional Falcon III AN/PRC-117G manpack radios from the U.S. Air Force.

The order was made in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 and follows several previous orders from the Air Force.

The company reports more than 16, 000 of the radios are deployed by all branches of the Defense Department, other federal agencies and several key allies.

“The AN/PRC-117G manpack provides Air Force personnel with enhanced voice, video and wideband data communications, ” said Dana Mehnert, Harris’ group president for Harris RF communications.

The upgradable radios reportedly enable mobile ad-hoc networking and provide application support with high-bandwidth data applications.
