Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has won a potential four-year, $160 million contract to provide Canada’s armed forces with radio products designed to transmit voice, imagery and data in the battlefield.
The Canadian military will receive Harris’ AN/PRC-152A and AN/PRC-117G wideband handheld and manpack radios as well as high-frequency RF-7800H tactical radios, Harris said Monday.
Brendan O’Connell, president of international business at Harris RF Communications, said the company’s Falcon III software-based radios are intended to support multiband and tactical communications during critical missions.
Harris designed Falcon technology to also address requirements under the U.S. military’s Joint Tactical Radio System program.
The company also offers communications equipment for utility, transportation and public safety organizations.
